As you likely have heard the final revisions to the Common Rule were released yesterday, to be published in the Federal Register today, January 19.

We are happy to provide you with a summary of the changes. Please note that the new administration still has the ability to overturn any new regulations, so it is currently unknown if the rule will be implemented.

In the meantime, we do not recommend that anyone implement revisions to their procedures and materials just yet, but begin to prepare.

What happens next? We will keep you abreast of any updates and provide you with assistance in how to implement these changes. You can also check out the PRIM&R webpage and the OHRP website for additional information and updates.
