RCS Quarterly Update: April 2017


Updates to Federal Policy for the Protection of Human Subjects

Research Compliance Services (RCS) is busy updating its guidance materials, policies, and procedures in order to address new rules surrounding the protection of human research participants issued by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services and adopted by 16 federal departments and agencies. It’s important to note the final rule updating the Federal Policy for the Protection of Human Subjects, also known as the Common Rule, under 45 CFR 46, Subpart A will not go into effect until January 19, 2018. RCS will keep the UO research community updated on these important changes and any developments as they occur through upcoming education and outreach efforts.
