I. Institutional AuthorityA. Vice President for ResearchThe Vice President for Research (VPR) reports to the President of the University of Texas at Arlington(UT Arlington). The Office of the VPR has the authority to develop and administer all policiesgoverning UT Arlington’s research enterprise. UT Arlington operates a centralized structure for theadministration of research, which includes the institutional review board (IRB) under the oversight ofthe VPR. As such, the leadership of the IRB report directly to the Office of the VPR.B. Institutional Review BoardHuman subjects research conducted at the University or under its auspices must be reviewed andapproved by the UT Arlington IRB prior to the start of the research. The UT Arlington IRB reviewsprojects in a wide range of research disciplines in the social, behavioral, educational, and biomedicalor clinical fields.1. ScopeThe UT Arlington IRB reviews protocols for research involving human subjects when conducted by orunder the direction of any employee, student, or an agent of UT Arlington in connection with his or herinstitutional responsibilities or using any institutional property or facility. Also, the IRB (or RegulatoryServices, as designee) reviews and acknowledges IRB reliance & reciprocity arrangements for researchprotocols of non-UT Arlington investigators when UT Arlington faculty, staff, or students are involved.Details of the scope of IRB review for each protocol is provided in Section VIII.A.2. AuthorityThe authority conveyed to the UT Arlington IRB includes the following:a. Review/approval of new/continuing research protocols involving human participants andassociated informed consent documents (ICD) prior to initiation/continuation of research;b. Monitoring of approved projects including regularly scheduled continuing review at leastevery twelve (12) months for certain non-exempt or greater than minimal risk studies;c. Verification of compliance with approved research protocols and informed consentprocedures;d. Review of all planned changes to approved protocols prior to implementation;e. Review of all serious adverse events (SAEs) and unanticipated problems involving risks tosubjects or others (UPs) occurring in approved projects, or in other projects related in contextto the approved projects;f. Restriction of approved research activities to protect participants when necessary; andg. Suspension/termination of previously approved protocols for substantive new informationthat may affect the safety and welfare of human subjects, the integrity of the study, ornoncompliance with established policies and procedures.Page 7 of 104

II. Principles & Compliance with Federal Regulations and University PoliciesAll research at UT Arlington that involves human subjects is guided by the ethical principles set forth in thereport of the National Commission for the Protection of Human Participants of Biomedical and BehavioralResearch entitled “Ethical Principles and Guidelines for the Protection of Human Subject of Research(Belmont Report)”. This document is listed as the guiding statement of ethical principles as part of UTArlington’s Federalwide Assurance for the Protection of Human Subjects with the federal government.All human subjects research conducted and reviewed by the UT Arlington IRB must comply with applicablefederal and state laws/regulations and UT Arlington policies and procedures governing the conduct ofresearch, including but not limited to the following:a. UT Arlington has filed a Federalwide Assurance (FWA) with the Department of Health and HumanServices (DHHS) Office for Human Research Protections (OHRP) affirming that the University is incompliance with 45 CFR 46. This assurance applies to all research involving human subjects that isconducted, supported or otherwise subject to regulation by any federal department or agency asdefined and regulated by the “Common Rule” – (DHHS regulations incorporate the RevisedCommon Rule as Subpart A of 45 CFR 46);b. The Department of Education Family Education Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) for studies involvingeducational and/or student records;c. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) regulations; the UT Arlington IRB complies with therequirements set forth in 21 CFR 50, 21 CFR 56, 21 CFR 312, 21 CFR 600, and 21 CFR 812 for studiesinvolving investigational drugs, biologics, devices, or diagnostic tests;d. Department of Defense (DoD) regulations and directives, including those at 32 CFR 219, 10 UnitedStates Code 980, and DoDI 3216.02, for studies funded or supported by DoD, and/or studies inwhich the subject population will intentionally include personnel (military and/or civilian) from acomponent of DoD;e. Texas State Law, including Section 261.101 of the Texas Family Code for mandatory reporting ofchild and elder abuse or neglect; and,f. UT Arlington institutional policies and procedures governing research, including UT Arlington’spolicy 5-705, Statement of Principles and Policies Regarding Human Subjects in Research, and thisSOP document.The purpose of the UT Arlington IRB is to assure that the rights and welfare of human subjects areadequately protected in research. The UT Arlington IRB advises investigators in the design of researchprojects in order to minimize potential harm to human participants; reviews all planned research involvinghuman subjects prior to initiation of the research; approves research that meets established criteria forprotection of human subjects; and monitors approved research protocols to ascertain whether humansubjects are indeed protected.The UT Arlington IRB also informs and assists UT Arlington faculty, staff, and students of ethical andprocedural issues related to the use of human participants in research in order to facilitate compliancewith relevant federal regulations and to provide a framework suitable for continued support by federalfunding agencies, private foundations, and industry.Page 8 of 104

Primary responsibility for assuring that the rights and welfare of research participants are protectedcontinues to rest with the Principal Investigator (PI) conducting the research. Others engaged in theresearch share this responsibility. Faculty who assign or supervise research conducted by students or staffhave an obligation to consider carefully whether those individuals are qualified to safeguard adequatelythe rights and welfare of participants in the research.Page 9 of 104

III. Definitionsa. Administrative Modification - Changes proposed to the IRB for an approved study that are minor andnon-substantive in nature and for which the IRB has delegated authority to IRB staff to conductAdministrative Review and approval, regardless of the study’s initial level of review or funding source.b. Adverse event - Any unfavorable or harmful occurrence to a human subjec

Food and Drug Administration (FDA) regulations; the UT Arlington IRB complies with the requirements set forth in 21 CFR 50, 21 CFR 56, 21 CFR 312, 21 CFR 600, and 21 CFR 812 for studies .
