Revisions to the Code of Federal Regulations will be effective on January 19, 2018. Existing exempt categories have been revised, and a new exempt category will be added for benign behavioral interventions that are brief in duration.

At this session, Human Research Protection Office (HRPO) staff will present a summary of changes to the exempt categories.  Preceding implementation of these changes, the HRPO will not accept new exempt submissions between the dates of January 1st and January 19th.

New exempt forms and revised guidance will be posted on the HRPO website in January.  Be sure to read the latest guidance and download the latest exempt forms each time you prepare a new exempt submission.  Outdated exempt forms predating the new regulations will no longer be accepted.
