Course Description

Having inadequate written procedures continues to be one of the most commonly cited findings for institutional review boards (IRBs) during the FDA’s Bioresearch Monitoring (BIMO) inspections. Both the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) and the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) regulations state that IRBs must follow written procedures for their functions and operations to protect the rights and welfare of human subjects. This web seminar will review the FDA’s Final Guidance on IRB Written Procedures to include a Written Procedures Checklist that incorporates the HHS and FDA regulatory requirements for written procedures for the IRB and recommendations on the type of operational details to support each of these requirements.
