Adding personnel to the protocol

Staff members need to be added to the Topaz Elements system before they can be added to your online protocol form. Contact AWP to make arrangements.

Adding supportive documents and links to your protocol

Where a paper clip icon is present in the question’s title bar, add attachments and links associated to clarify on your response to the question.
