New "Common Rule" IRB Regulations
Effective January 2018

The scheduled date for the majority of the revisions to the New Federal IRB Regulations is quickly approaching. The 125-page policy governing research involving human subjects involves significant changes to improve protections and streamline the IRB review process. While there is a chance of a one-year delay in implementing some of the provisions, IRBs would likely be able to proceed with implementing several “burden-reducing” changes. The Office of Research Integrity (ORI) is preparing for the upcoming regulatory shift by revising applications, procedure/guidance documents, checklists, and even the new E-IRB submission system to take advantage of regulatory flexibility. The hope is that the E-IRB system, currently in pilot phase, can be launched campus-wide based on the new rule.  This would allow researchers to transition to a version of E-IRB that will closely mirror the future of research oversight.

This even is a repeat offering of the November presentation for researchers.
