Policies, Procedures and Regulations

Human Research Protection Program Plan

This Institution is committed to protecting the rights and welfare of subjects in Human Research. The purpose of the Human Research Protection Program Plan is to describe this Institution’s plan to comply with ethical and legal requirements for the conduct and oversight of Human Research.

Standard Operating Procedures (SOPs)

Office for Human Research Protections (OHRP) and Health and Human Services (HHS) have compiled a summary of the relevant regulatory requirements and guidance issued routinely over the past several years. For each required element, the UC Davis IRB Standard Operation Procedures (SOPs) should provide sufficient step-by-step operational details so that an independent observer can understand how the UC Davis IRB operates and conducts its major functions.

Federal, State, and Institutional Requirements

A list of federal, state, and institutional requirements may be found on our IRB policies and regulations webpage.

The UC Davis IRB’s compliance statement may be found on our About IRB webpage.

The UC Davis IRB has developed worksheets and checklists that reference federal, state, and institutional regulations and laws for use by the UC Davis IRB Administration staff, analyst, and committee reviewers as part of the IRB review process. These documents are made available to the UCD research community for reference only. Do not submit these to the IRB as part of your application.
