Emory IRB Has New Guidance on Data Sharing Certifications:

Researchers are often asked by the NIH or by collaborators to obtain “institutional certification” to share research data in large repositories. It’s often not clear how to go about this. To help researchers, the Emory IRB has created a web page covering who certifies, and what the IRB needs in order to verify that the data sharing complies with NIH policy. Please see the new content here: http://irb.emory.edu/forms/Data_Sharing.html. Email Rebecca Rousselle, IRB Director, with any questions.
