Frequently Asked Questions

May a hospital IRB review a study that will be conducted outside of the hospital?

No items found.
IRB: General

Yes. IRBs may agree to review research from affiliated or unaffiliated investigators; however, FDA does not require IRBs to assume this responsibility. If the IRB routinely conducts these reviews, the IRB policies should authorize such reviews and the process should be described in the IRB's written procedures. A hospital IRB may review outside studies on an individual basis when the minutes clearly show the members are aware of where the study is to be conducted and when the IRB possesses appropriate knowledge about the study site(s).
