Revised Common Rule (Human Subjects Regulations)Monday, January 22nd 2018
The regulations that human subjects researchers must adhere to (referred to as the Common Rule Regulations) were established in 1991. In 2011, federal agencies began the long-awaited process to revise these regulations and, on January 18, 2017, the final revisions to the Common Rule (Final Rule) were posted in the federal register. As announced on January 17, 2018 and formally posted on January 22, 2018, the revised final Common Rule is now to be both effective and implemented on July 19, 2018. This is a 6-month delay in the effective and implementation date.
