New Human Subjects Rule Resources (2018)

On January 19, 2017, the federal government issued a revised rule on human subjects protection.  Originally, that rule was to be implemented on January 19, 2018. However, on January 17, 2018, the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services and 15 other federal departments and agencies announced that implementation of the new rule has been delayed until July 19, 2018.  Further delays are possible. Carleton College will apply the old, unrevised rule until the new rule is officially implemented. The materials on this page were developed to help the Carleton community understand the new rule but until the new rule is fully implemented serve only as references, not guidance for applicants or reviewers.
