January 21, 2019 - IMPLEMENTATION OF THE REVISIONS TO THE COMMON RULE

After a previous implementation delay in January 2018, revisions to the Common Rule – a regulation governing the use of human subjects in federal research – are planned to take full effect on January 21, 2019. The IRB staff is prepared to apply the new/revised regulations once they become effective.  Please keep in mind that this may involve additional outreach from the IRB staff during review. If you wish to learn more about the revisions and new requirements, please visit our dedicated guidance page for detailed information regarding the Common Rule revisions.
