Common Rule Agencies Propose 6-Month Delay to Implement New Revisions on Human Subjects Research


U.S. federal agencies that regulate research using human subjects (known as the Common Rule) have proposed to further delay the implementation of recent revisions by an additional six months. The announcement from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services was made on April 19, 2018, setting a new compliance date of Jan. 21, 2019.

COSSA (the Consortium of Social Science Associations), of which NCFR is a member, has been following this ongoing story closely, and has provided detailed summaries of the regulation changes and the reasons for the delay.
