At the Social and Behavioral Sciences Research Consortium, we strive to keep you updated on important social and behavioral sciences news. Please see below the article on the revised "Common Rule" and the link to the website Research Compliance has created to provide the information and updates as the January 2018 compliance deadline approaches. 

REVISED “COMMON RULE” TO AFFECT HUMAN
SUBJECTS RESEARCH REGULATIONS
Changes to regulations governing human subjects research, as outlined in the
Common Rule, 45 CFR 46, were published in the Federal Register in January.
The majority of rule changes will take effect Jan. 19, 2018.
The amended rules are the first significant changes to human subjects
regulations since 1991. While some changes will reduce the burden on
researchers and institutional compliance areas, many of the new requirements
come with additional responsibilities.

To help UNL researchers comply with the new regulations, Research
Compliance Services has created a (http://research.unl.edu/
researchcompliance/changes-to-the-common-rule/) to provide information
and updates as the January 2018 compliance deadline approaches. Human
subjects researchers are urged to use this resource for details on changes to the
regulations and their impact on the university, explanations on how to comply
with the changes, frequently asked questions, training opportunities, and
additional links and information.

Services, at 402-472-4491.
