Expedited Review (minimal risk) 

There are no submission deadlines for projects qualifying for minimal risk review criteria. Upon submitting a request for expedited review, the RISe system will send an automated message to the research project principal investigator and primary contact indicating a "virtual" meeting date for the review. It does not necessarily mean that the application will be reviewed on that specific date.

Typically the REB reviews minimal risk applications within two weeks of the virtual meeting date but this can vary.
