Federal Requirements For Studies Submitted To The IRB

The US Department of Health and Human Services and 15 other federal departments and agencies announced an Interim Final Rule (IFR) on January 17, 2018 that delays by six months the effective date and general compliance date of the provisions in the revised Common Rule. The compliance and effective dates have now been delayed to July 19, 2018 in order to provide regulated entities additional time to prepare to implement the changes. Until July 19, 2018, regulated entities (including the UM IRBs) will be required to comply with the pre-2018 Common Rule.

More information and specific guidance with respect to impacts to the University of Miami research community will be released in the near future.
