HHS/FDA RIN: 0910-AI08 Publication ID: Fall 2022 
Title: Institutional Review Boards; Cooperative Research 

This proposed rule would replace current FDA requirements for cooperative research such that any institution located in the United States (U.S.) participating in multisite cooperative research would need to rely on approval by a single Institutional Review Board (IRB) for that portion of the research that is conducted in the U.S., with some exceptions.  This proposed rule would also establish an IRB recordkeeping requirement for research that takes place at an institution in which IRB oversight is conducted by an IRB that is not operated by the institution.
