IRB Member Review Checklists
The following checklists are available for the IRB members to use as tools for the IRB reviews. These may be used both for individual member Expedited reviews as well as for preparation of Full Board review meetings.
While members are not required to fill out these checklists, they should be familiar with the information in these checklists and be referred to when reviewing studies. These checklists will assist in the IRB review process to help assure that the federal and local requirements for IRB review and approval are met.
