Federal Policy on Protection of Human Subjects (the Common Rule)

UPDATE: Delay in Changes to the Federal Policy on Protection of Human Subjects (the Common Rule): A revised version of the federal rule governing Human Subjects Research (i.e. the Common Rule) was scheduled to go into effect on January 19, 2018. On January 17, 2018 an Interim Final Rule was released delaying the effective date of the rule changes until at least July 19, 2018. The Interim Final Rule can be accessed at the following link: https://www.federalregister.gov/documents/2018/01/22/2018-00997/federal-policy-for-the-protection-of-human-subjects-delay-of-the-revisions-to-the-federal-policy-for.

Until the Final Rule becomes effective, all human subjects research must continue to comply with the existing Common Rule. The OHSR will keep study teams apprised of any changes to the federal requirements for human subjects protections. Please check the OHSR website frequently for any updates.
