You can call or email your case manager directly. Also, you can visit the submission guidance section of the HRPP website: for specific instructions on how to complete each type of submission. </p><p></p></li><li><p> Page 4 of 12 </p><p>EXEMPT NEW STUDY 45 CFR 46.101(b) Categories of Exempt Human Subjects Research* </p><p>1) Research conducted in established or commonly accepted educational settings, involving normal educational practices, such as: </p><p>a. research on regular and special education instructional strategies or b. research on the effectiveness of or the comparison among instructional techniques, </p><p>curricula or classroom management methods. </p><p>2) Research involving the use of educational tests (cognitive, diagnostic, aptitude, achievement), survey procedures, interview procedures or observation of public behavior, unless: </p><p>a. information obtained is recorded in such a manner that subjects can be identified, directly or through identifiers linked to the subjects and </p><p>b. any disclosure of the human subjects' responses outside the research could reasonably place the subjects at risk of criminal or civil liability or be damaging to the subjects' financial standing, employability or reputation. </p><p>3) Research involving the use of educational tests (cognitive, diagnostic, aptitude, achievement), survey procedures, interview procedures or observation of public behavior that is not exempt under category # 2 (above) if: </p><p>a. the human subjects are elected or appointed public officials or candidates for public office, or </p><p>b. federal statute(s) require(s) without exception that the confidentiality of the personally identifiable information will be maintained throughout the research and thereafter. </p><p>4) Research involving the collection or study of existing data, documents, records, pathological specimens or diagnostic specimens, if these sources are publicly available or the information is recorded by the investigator in such a manner that the subjects cannot be identified directly or through identifiers linked to the subjects. </p><p>5) Research and demonstration projects which are conducted by or subject to the approval of (federal) department or agency heads and which are designed to study, evaluate or otherwise examine: </p><p>a. public benefit or service programs, b. procedures for obtaining benefits or services under those programs, c. possible changes in or alternatives to those programs or procedures or d. possible changes in methods or levels of payment for benefits or services under those </p><p>programs. </p><p>6) Taste and food quality evaluation and consumer acceptance studies, if: a. wholesome foods without additives are consumed or b. if a food is consumed that contains a food ingredient at or below the level and for a use </p><p>found to be safe, or agricultural chemical or environmental contaminant at or below the level found to be safe, by the Food and Drug Administration or approved by the Environmental Protection Agency or the Food Safety and Inspection Service of the U. S. Department of Agriculture. </p><p>*Important Notes:. "Existing" means at the time the research is proposed. These exemptions do not apply to research involving prisoners (45 CFR Part 46 Subpart C). Exempt, Category 2 does not apply to research with children (45 CFR Part 46 Subpart D) except for research involving educational tests (cognitive, diagnostic, aptitude, achievement) or observations of public behavior when the researcher(s) do not participate in the activities being observed. </p></li><li><p> Page 5 of 12 </p><p> DOCUMENTS REQUIRED FOR EXEMPT RESEARCH STUDIES: </p><p>1) IRB Application for Exemption (will serve as the protocol) 2) Any documents that will be given to or presented to subjects 3) If you are doing a data review study, you must also submit a blank data collection sheet 4) If you are doing an educational test, survey, or interview, you will need to submit a copy of this </p><p>document, as well as an information sheet that will be provided to the subjects. This information sheet will serve as informed consent. The template can be found online. </p><p> Examples of Exempt Category 1: An investigator investigates whether their new PowerPoint presentation on hand sanitizing is better than the standard hand sanitizing education at decreasing the number of hospital related infections. The presentation is done during a nurses training seminar. Category 2: An investigator anonymously surveys patients before and after laparoscopic surgery to determine if their diets have changed because of the surgery. Category 3: An investigator anonymously surveys a senator regarding a concentration of cancer patients in a region with known water pollution. Category 4: An investigator reviews medical charts to determine if hepatitis B is related to tuberculosis. The investigator does not record any of the 18 protected health identifiers. Category 5: An investigator, on behalf of the FDA, examines whether West Nile spraying has an effect on lung conditions in people. Category 6: An investigator examines which flavor of two wholesome and additive-free foods are preferred by patients in the hospital during recovery, An exempt study can consist of multiple exempt categories. Under category 4: If information about patients is being collected from multiple sources, a temporary link is allowed in order to correctly account to whom the information belongs; however, this link must be destroyed immediately after data collection and prior to any data analysis occurring. </p></li><li><p> Page 6 of 12 </p><p>EXPEDITED NEW STUDY: 45 CFR 46.110 Categories of Expedited Human Subjects Research* </p><p>(1) Clinical studies of drugs and medical devices only when condition (a) or (b) is met. (a) Research on drugs for which an investigational new drug application (21 CFR Part 312) is </p><p>not required. (Note: Research on marketed drugs that significantly increases the risks or decreases the acceptability of the risks associated with the use of the product is not eligible for expedited review.) </p><p>(b) Research on medical devices for which (i) an investigational device exemption application (21 CFR Part 812) is not required; or (ii) the medical device is cleared/approved for marketing and the medical device is being used in accordance with its cleared/approved labeling. </p><p>(2) Collection of blood samples by finger stick, heel stick, ear stick, or venipuncture as follows: (a) from healthy, non-pregnant adults who weigh at least 110 pounds. For these subjects, the </p><p>amounts drawn may not exceed 550 ml in an 8 week period and collection may not occur more frequently than 2 times per week; or </p><p>(b) from other adults and children2, considering the age, weight, and health of the subjects, the collection procedure, the amount of blood to be collected, and the frequency with which it will be collected. For these subjects, the amount drawn may not exceed the lesser of 50 ml or 3 ml per kg in an 8 week period and collection may not occur more frequently than 2 times per week. </p><p>(3) Prospective collection of biological specimens for research purposes by noninvasive means. Examples: (a) hair and nail clippings in a non-disfiguring manner; (b) deciduous teeth at time of exfoliation or if routine patient care indicates a need for </p><p>extraction; (c) permanent teeth if routine patient care indicates a need for extraction; (d) excreta and external secretions (including sweat); (e) uncannulated saliva collected either in an unstimulated fashion or stimulated by chewing </p><p>gumbase or wax or by applying a dilute citric solution to the tongue; (f) placenta removed at delivery; (g) amniotic fluid obtained at the time of rupture of the membrane prior to or during labor; (h) supra- and subgingival dental plaque and calculus, provided the collection procedure is not </p><p>more invasive than routine prophylactic scaling of the teeth and the process is accomplished in accordance with accepted prophylactic techniques; </p><p>(i) mucosal and skin cells collected by buccal scraping or swab, skin swab, or mouth washings; </p><p>(j) sputum collected after saline mist nebulization. </p><p>(4) Collection of data through noninvasive procedures (not involving general anesthesia or sedation) routinely employed in clinical practice, excluding procedures involving x-rays or microwaves. Where medical devices are employed, they must be cleared/approved for marketing. (Studies intended to evaluate the safety and effectiveness of the medical device are not generally eligible for expedited review, including studies of cleared medical devices for new indications.)
