Common Rule Revision Delayed!

On Jan 17, HHS announced an interim Rule that would delay the effective and compliance dates of the Revised Common Rule to July 19, 2018. This will allow time for the regulatory agencies to develop more guidance around the Rule, and they will also work wtih stakeholders to determine when the Rule should ultimately go into effect. eIRB changes related to the revised Rule were implemented, but will be "turned off" until the Rule becomes effective. Note that the NIH policy changes related to clinical trials and single IRB review are still in place.
