IRB: News and Updates

You are here


The General Implementation date for the Revised Common Rule went into effect January 19, 2018. As part of the Revised Common Rule, the regulations require that Federally-funded or supported non-exempt cooperative research studies (that is, studies involving more than one institution) must rely on the use of a single reviewing IRB for the portion(s) of the research being conducted in the U.S. For more information, please see our guidance on Single IRB (sIRB) Review for Multi-Site Cooperative Research.
