Public Comment on QIBA Profiles and Protocols
All QIBA technical documents (Profiles, Protocols) are posted for Public Comment to ensure stakeholder representation, transparency and quality review. All documents are posted via the QIBA WIKI and announced to a broad e-mail distribution list. QIBA documents are posted for public review for a minimum of 30 days before being considered finalized for trial implementation.
The Public Comment Phase of the development of each QIBA Profile/Protocol allows interested people to provide input on the document, the scenarios and use cases they address, the technologies proposed and other details. In particular, vendors who will implement the Profiles/Protocols and members of the healthcare community who will use the Profiles/Protocols are encouraged to review and comment.
- Review the documents listed in the Public Comment WIKI page
- Note the deadline listed next to each document
- Submit your comments via the comment form or direct e-mail to (Susan Weinmann)
The QIBA Biomarker Committees who develop QIBA Profiles and Protocols will consider all comments submitted in the specified public comment period, and where appropriate, respond to comments. Please see below for more detailed instructions for submitting comments.
