UC Memorandum Of Understanding (UC MOU) 


The UC Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) establishes a reliance agreement between and among the Human Research Protection Programs at the ten campuses of the University of California and the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory. This MOU describes the procedures for the reliance by an IRB at a UC campus or at the Berkeley Lab on the review and approval of human subject research, by an IRB at another UC campus.


**For projects involving the five University of California biomedical campuses (UCLA, UCSD, UCI, UCD, UCSF), IREx (IRB Exchange, formerly called SMART IRB Exchange) should be used instead of the UC IRB Reliance Registry.**
