OHRP: Revised Set of Frequently Asked Questions and Answers on IRB Registration

Mar 29, 2010 at 6:21am

OHRP posted on its website a revised set of Frequently Asked Questions and Answers (FAQs) on Institutional Review Board (IRB) Registration.

These revised FAQs include guidance on the Department of Health and Human Services IRB requirements found in subpart E of 45 CFR 46 that were adopted on July 14, 2009. The use of the word "must" in OHRP guidance means that something is required under HHS regulations at 45 CFR part 46. The use of the word "should" in OHRP guidance means that something is recommended or suggested, but not required. The revised OHRP IRB Registration FAQs can be accessed at: http://answers.hhs.gov/ohrp/categories/1565
