OHRP Archives Guidance Document on IRB Knowledge of Local Research Context

Aug 3, 2012 at 5:27am

OHRP has moved the guidance entitled "IRB Knowledge of Local Research Context" to its archive of guidance documents no longer in effect.  That guidance was last updated in 2000, and, due to developments over the interveneing years, much of the information in the guidance is now outdated or inaccurate.  OHRP plans to develop new guidance that will address the issues discussed in the now-archived July 21, 2000 guidance.

If you have specific questions regarding the issues discussed in the archived guidance, please contact OHRP by phone at (866) 447-4777 (toll-free within the U.S.) or (240) 453-6900, or by e-mail at ohrp@hhs.gov.

All archived OHRP documents may be accessed on the OHRP Web site at: http://www.hhs.gov/ohrp/archive
