Common Rule

Common Rule

Applies to federally supported research on human subjects, as well as research that is not federally supported but the institutions conducting it voluntarily agree to comply with federal standards. The Common Rule generally requires that an ethics committee or Institutional Review Board (IRB) review the proposed research and sets out explicit standards for informed consent by research subjects, although an IRB may waive the consent requirements.
