10 Federal Regulations regarding expedited review Federal Regulations allow for expedited review when  Research presents no more than minimal risk  The research fits specified categories  The identification of subjects (or their responses) would not place them at risk of criminal or civil liability, be damaging to their financial standing or reputation, be stigmatizing (unless there are appropriate protections in place for guarding this)

11 HIC Procedures for Expedited Review  Once the protocol or amendment has been triaged as expeditable it is given to the administrative assistants to enter all of the protocol information into COEUS, the HIC tracking system.  Once a protocol is entered into COEUS it is then assigned for review

12 HIC Procedures for Expedited Review (cont’d)  When a protocol is being reviewed as “expedited”, communication between the HIC staff and protocol correspondent is usually via or phone call.  This communication will notify the correspondent as to whether the protocol is approved or requires specific minor revisions.
