  2. For protocols that undergo the expedited review process, the IRB Chair, or the individual he or she designates, reviews each protocol within the HSPP to ensure the above.
  3. The initial review application and the Amendment and Continuing Review guides allow the IRB or designated individual to identify, manage, and resolve ethical issues.
  4. If necessary, ad hoc consultants are obtained to provide ethical opinions for the IRB or the designated individual in accordance with UIC HSPP policy Identification and Use of ad hoc Consultants.
