Expedited Review 

Protocols falling under an expedited category and involving no more than minimal risk, as well as minor changes in approved full board protocols, may be reviewed under an expedited process. The Chair of CPHS 1 either reviews or delegates the review to one or more experienced CPHS members, who review the protocol under applicable regulations and either approve or require modifications to the protocol prior to approval. An expedited reviewer may not disapprove a protocol, but may forward to the fully convened committee for further determination if warranted. Expedited submissions are assigned weekly, thus turnaround time for these submissions is expected to be quicker than for protocols undergoing full board review.  

Exempt Status

Protocols falling under an exempt category defined under the federal regulations require review by the CPHS office. While the investigator will select whether he/she feels the protocol is exempt within the RAMP application, the final determination of exemption category is made by the CPHS office. A review is conducted to ensure basic ethical principles, such as confidentiality of data and obtaining informed consent where applicable, are addressed. Applications for exempt protocols are reviewed by CPHS staff on a weekly basis.
