Founded in 1985, under the parent company PPD, Inc., RCRC IRB has become one of the most established independent review boards in the nation.

In February 2009 RCRC IRB launched GlobeSync™ Virtual Workspace, a WEB-based IRB document delivery and repository for clinical trials. GlobeSync™ provides sponsors, study managers, study monitors, and investigators secure, real-time access to IRB study documents enabling more efficient document delivery. One year later, in February 2010, RCRC IRB launched SafeSync™ Online Submissions, a WEB-based IRB document submission system for clinical trials. SafeSync™ offers sponsors, study managers, and investigators a more efficient and secure document submission delivery system.
