Dec 2, 2010 at 6:27pm

OHRP has posted on its website a finalized guidance document entitled, "Guidance on IRB Continuing Review of Research." The guidance document supersedes OHRP's January 15, 2007 guidance entitled "Guidance on Continuing Review." The guidance document finalizes the draft guidance that was made available for public comment through a notice in the Federal Register on November 6, 2009 (74 FR 57487). The public comments submitted on our draft document were very helpful to us as we finalized this guidance document, and we thank those of you who took the time to provide us with your feedback.

The finalized guidance document is available on the OHRP website at: http://www.hhs.gov/ohrp/policy/continuingreview2010.html or http://www.hhs.gov/ohrp/policy/continuingreview2010.pdf.
