Webinar: (2017-01) PRIM&R's Primer on the Revised Common Rule

On January 19, 2017, the Office of the Federal Register published a revised Federal Policy for the Protection of Human Subjects, marking the first significant changes to the Federal Policy for the Protection of Human Subjects, or "Common Rule," since 1991. These changes will have important and wide-reaching implications for the human subjects research enterprise. However, the Rule arrives under a cloud of uncertainty: A new presidential administration takes over the reins of the federal government on January 20, and it is unclear whether they will use available avenues to overturn the new Rule. Whether or not the new Rule survives long enough to be implemented, the issues it addresses are important to the future of the research oversight community. This webinar will provide an overview of the critical changes presented in the Rule as well as an explanation of the rulemaking process and the various possible outcomes.
