A Final Rule was published by HHS and 16 other federal departments and agencies to delay the general compliance date of the revised Federal Policy for the Protection of Human Subjects (also known as the Common Rule) for an additional 6 months.

Additionally, the Final Rule permits (but not require) institutions to adopt three burden-reducing provisions during the delay period of July 19, 2018 and January 20, 2019.
