IBC Registration

compass pointing toward integrity

The IBC Registration Process is Moving to BioRAFT (SciShield):


To register your project with the IBC:

  1. Contact the IBC coordinator to register your laboratory as a handler of biohazardous materials in BioRAFT: adonovan@fau.edu.
  2. You will receive an email from BioRAFT detailing the process for registering with the IBC.
  3. PIs may delegate the registration process to another laboratory member.
  4. Answer the questions in BioRAFT following the prompts.
  5. To submit the registration, the PI must certify the data by clicking on the “certify” button on the Biological Summary page and initialing the statements.

All laboratories at FAU should be registered in BioRAFT (SciShield) through EH&S.


As of October 1, 2021, all new and renewed IBC registrations must be submitted through BioRAFT (SciShield).

All existing IBC registrations are valid until their listed expiration dates.
