You can send boxes for storage at any time. On receipt of the boxes we would use the current anticipated study end date as the first trigger. This is the date the current renewal is projected to end. As your stored boxes near the end of their retention period, you will receive an automatic notification email from our database asking for the most current award renewal date. Each time we receive a new projected end date we will revise the study end trigger date in our database.

Please note that we will not start the count-down of the actual retention until there are no more changes to the trigger date. The retention clock will not start until the award is no longer renewed.
