Final revisions to IRB regulations have been published. These updates are effective on January 19, 2018. There is a possibility that this date could be pushed back or the proposed changes may not be implemented.
However, even though the proposed changes may not go into effect, the UGA Human Subjects Office is preparing updates to policies and the IRB portal to comply with these updates in case they do. The Final Rule is published on OHRP’s website. Additional resources are available on the CITI training site.
We will continue to update the UGA research community as information becomes available. If you have any questions, please contact the Human Subjects Office (firstname.lastname@example.org).
