    The Office for Human Research Protections (OHRP) updated its list of Companion Q&As about the Revised Common Rule. The three new questions include:

    • What is the general compliance date of the revised Common Rule and what does it mean?
    • Does my institution need to revise its FWA because of the revised Common Rule?
    • After January 21, 2019 (the general compliance date for the revised Common Rule), is the 1998 Expedited Review List still in effect for studies subject to the revised Common Rule?

    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 was January 21, 2019. 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.
