Agenda Sent to IRB

The Revised Common Rule went into effect January 21, 2019. The Common Rule, the federal human research protections regulations, was revised for the first time since being promulgated in 1991. The revisions are extensive and you can read the entirety of it online. Read the UNM IRB's Transition memo for detailed information about UNM IRB’s transition to the new regulations. Please review this document and contact our office with any questions. Note that if you have a currently approved project with an expiration date, that expiration date is still in effect until the IRB reviews the project under the new regulations.

Forms, templates, and policies have been updated to reflect the Revised Common Rule. It is important that you download the most current versions of IRB submission documents to prevent delays in the review process. When submitting new packages to the IRB, always obtain forms and templates from the IRB Library.

The agenda is sent to the board members with the materials to complete reviews in preparation for the convened IRB meeting. Any submission that is scheduled for the full board meeting this month must have all pending clarifications addressed by today or the submission will be taken off the agenda and will not be reviewed at this month’s full board meeting.
