Revisions to the Federal Policy for the Protection of Human Subjects
In January 2017, final revisions to the Federal Policy for the Protection of Human Subjects were issued by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services and 15 other federal agencies. Most of these provisions will go into effect on January 19, 2018, with the exception of the requirements for cooperative research which go into effect on January 20, 2020. Until then, the current regulations remain in place.  In addition, this revised regulation is subject to additional review by the federal government which could result in changes. As implementation proceeds, more information will be provided.

Visit the MSU HRPP Revisions to the Federal Policy for the Protection of Human Subjects webpage for more information, including a summary of the changes.
