    On November 19, 2018, OHRP published a draft guidance document titled Activities Deemed Not to Be Research: Public Health Surveillance, 2018 Requirements. This guidance document is intended to help entities determine whether a planned activity constitutes a public health surveillance activity deemed not to be research under the 2018 Requirements. The public may submit comments until December 19, 2018.

    On January 18, 2017, the Federal Policy for the Protection of Human Subjects, or Common Rule, was updated for the first time since its publication in 1991. The explicit goal of these revisions—the result of collaboration between the US Department of Health and Human Services and 15 other Federal Departments and Agencies—is to reduce administrative burden and better protect subjects in the modern research context.

    The implementation date for most provisions of the revised rule is January 21, 2019, leaving research ethics professionals a short window to comprehend the new rule and update their institutional policies and procedures accordingly. Through its Focus on the Revised Common Rule resources and programs, PRIM&R provides you with comprehensive in-person and online education and resources to help you understand the new provisions and what they mean for your human research protections program.
