No. Whenever an application is received, it is evaluated by a board member to determine which level of review is appropriate. Many research proposals will be exempt from complete review. In these cases, the board members checks that all information is properly documented for th records. Non-exempt research that is considered of minimal risk is expeditiously reviewed if no additional concerns apply, such as specially protected subject populations or above minimal risk. Expedited review involves evaluating the informed consent process, data storage, and study procedures. Non-approved expedited proposals and prjects proposed to be of more than minimal risk is reviewed by the full board. Information can be found as to what level of review is likely to be required by consulting the IRB website's "Category of Research" or by contacting the IRB (email@example.com). Any proposal that is submitted whereby members of the research team have not completed ethics training will not pass review.
