AMIA Recommends Swift Implementation of Common Rule 2018 Requirements

March 19, 2018

In comments submitted to HHS March 19, 2018, AMIA recommended that HHS proceed swiftly with implementation of revisions to the Common Rule, known as the 2018 Requirements. AMIA recommended that 2018 Requirements be made effective July 19, 2018 and that the compliance date be set as January 19, 2019. This staggered approach will enable researchers who are ready to benefit from the new changes the ability to proceed, while giving additional time to those who need more time to harmonize old and new requirements.
