The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services and 15 other federal departments and agencies have issued revisions to the “Federal Policy for the Protection of Human Subjects” (also known as the Common Rule). These changes take effect on January 21, 2019.
The Office of Research Integrity Assurance at Georgia Tech has published a Standard Operating Procedure for the Transition to the New Common Rule. We have also created an animated "Explainer Video" to support the research community in this transition.
