Get help making decisions
The Office for Human Research Protections of the Department of Health and Human Services provides a decision tree to help you decide: Does my research activity have to be reviewed by the IRB? Can the review go through the expedited process? Can informed consent be waived?

Use decision trees regularly when considering projects:

Exempt - review determines whether or not the proposed research meets the requirements or exempt status, or whether the project should be submitted for review under another category.
Expedited - applicable in instances of renewal, minor changes in previously reviewed research, and in special cases of limited human involvement with minimal risk.
Full - required for all new research proposals that do not meet the requirements for Exempt status or Expedited review (99% of all of our projects will be either exempt or expedited).
