HHS/FDA RIN: 0910-AH52 Publication ID: Fall 2018 
Title: Institutional Review Board Waiver or Alteration of Informed Consent for Minimal Risk Clinical Investigations 
Abstract:

This proposed regulation would permit an Institutional Review Board (IRB) to waive or alter the informed consent requirements under certain conditions for minimal risk clinical investigations. This would facilitate certain minimal risk clinical investigations to support the development of new products to diagnose or treat disease and would harmonize with the HHS Common Rule waiver provision that has been adopted and successfully employed by other agencies. This proposed regulation is intended to aid patient access to new products by facilitating investigators’ ability to conduct studies that may contribute substantially to the development of products to diagnose or treat diseases or conditions, or address unmet medical needs.
