Additional Six Months Delay for General Compliance for the changes to the Common Rule
On June 18, 2018, we were notified that the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) and 16 other federal departments and agencies are issuing a Final Rule to delay for an additional 6 months the general compliance date for changes recently made to the revised Federal Policy for the Protection of Human Subjects (also known as the Common Rule). The Final Rule delays the general compliance date of the 2018 Requirements for an additional 6-month period until January 21, 2019. The IRB is reviewing this information but we will let you know about any changes that may affect you, if any.
