Upcoming changes in the 2018 Common Rule - Exemptions

The Exempt Working Group has been formed to ensure that the IRB exempt guidance and IRB exempt forms are updated to reflect the revised regulations expected to take effect in 2018.  There will be revisions to existing categories of exempt review and an additional category has been added.  Changes will be based on the regulations, input from SACHRP, and feedback from the research community. 

Remember to always ensure that you are using the most current form and guidance available on our web site: Exempt Review.  If you have questions, please contact askirb@pitt.edu (Include the PI name and PRO# if available).
