The implementation of the new proposed Common
Rule, underway at FAU and at other institutions, has been delayed until July 19, 2018.
The new rule changes regulations requiring Institutional Review Board (IRB) reviews, including: additional exempt categories, continuing review oversight, new criteria of vulnerable populations and diversified forms of consent. The latter includes broad consents. Institutions have been instructed to continue with current practices operating under the existing common rule.
