Resource: Sample Exempt Research Guidance Summary

Exempt Research

Federal regulations designate certain types of research involving Human Subjects as being exempt from further IRB oversight. A designation of ‘exempt’ means the project IS human research, but it is very low risk and not subject to further requirements in the federal regulations.

Determination of whether a project is exempt from further IRB oversight requires a determination by a designated IRB member. Investigators cannot make determinations whether Human Research projects meet the regulatory criteria for exemption.
