The NIMH DUC form is necessary for “Recipient” Principal Investigators and their organization or corporations with approved assurance from the DHHS Office of Human Research Protections to access data or images from NIMH repositories and datasets for research purposes. The primary use of this information is to document, track, monitor, and evaluate the use of the NIMH repositories/datasets, as well as to notify interested recipients of updates, corrections or other changes to the database. There are currently three data repositories/sets positioned to use the NIMH DUC form: NDAR, the NIH Pediatric MRI Data Repository (PedsMRI), and the NIMH Clinical Research Datasets (NCRD).

OMB approval is requested for 3 years. There are no costs to respondents other than their time. The total estimated annualized burden hours are 380.
