Updated Form: Protection of Human Subjects Assurance Identification/IRB Certification/Declaration of Exemption (Common Rule)

HHS recently updated the “Protection of Human Subjects Assurance Identification/IRB Certification/Declaration of Exemption (Common Rule)” form that is often submitted during JIT for NIH and other federal agencies.

Please note this document is used to demonstrate VUMC’s certification of compliance regarding IRB review and approval in accordance with the Common Rule (federal policy for the protection of human subjects).  The form can be accessed here, or through OSP’s website, under “Forms.” Please be sure to update your files with the new form.
