Assurance for Projects for which IRB Review is Not Required*
Under certain conditions, classroom-based research projects and quality improvement/quality assurance (QI/QA) projects undertaken by EWU faculty, staff, and student employees do not require review and approval by the Institutional Review Board (IRB) for Human Subjects Research. To conduct a project without an IRB review, all of the conditions identified for the type of project to be undertaken must be met. To assure that a project is not subject to IRB review and approval, an Assurance for Project for which IRB Review is Not Required must be completed and signed by the person responsible for the project. The application must be submitted prior to conducting the project. Submit an original and one copy, one-sided copies only.
