Independent Review

The federal assurance under which human subjects research is conducted at CSU Long Beach accepts the federal interpretation that "exempt from IRB review" requires that someone other than the researcher makes an independent judgment that the exemption is appropriate under the circumstances of the specific research. Accordingly, the University has instituted an "Administrative Review" process, and this process is used for research when "existing data" is used in the conduct of the research.

Except in the cases described on the next page , the University requires that an application be submitted which describes the research and the data sufficiently that the risk to human subjects can be reasonably determined.
