Revisions to Federal Policy for the Protection of Human Subjects (45 CFR 46)-effective January 19, 2018

Implementation of revisions to the Common Rule, federal policy for the protection of human subjects (45 CFR Part 46), as well as corresponding CUNY Human Research Protection Program (HRPP) Policies & Procedures are scheduled to go into effect on January 19, 2018.

Information regarding changes to the Common Rule are available on the OHRP 'Final Revisions to the Common Rule' website. Changes to the CUNY HRPP policies are summarized here. The CUNY Office of Research Compliance will publish revised policies, guidance and templates on their HRPP Policies & Procedures website on January 19, 2018.

All new protocols that remain to be approved by the CUNY HRPP/UI-IRB on or after January 19, 2018 will be subject to review as per the revised Common Rule and revised HRPP Policies & Procedures. As such, they must adhere to the revised policies, guidance and templates. If you are in the process of developing a new submission and/or revising your submission based on pre-review comments, it is recommended that you submit after January 19, 2018. We thank you in advance for your patience as we acquaint ourselves with the revisions and changes to the CUNY Policies & Procedures.

In regards to active protocols, we will have additional guidance from CUNY's Office of Research soon and will update our website with information as to how it may affect your active studies as soon as it is received.

Please subscribe to our HRPP listserv for updates and alerts.
