The US Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) held a meeting of the Secretary's Advisory Committee on Human Research Protections (SACHRP) on Wednesday and Thursday, October 21-22, 2015. The Committee heard Subpart A Subcommittee (SAS) and Subcommittee on Harmonization (SOH) reports on the recent Notice of Proposed Rulemaking (NPRM) titled Federal Policy for the Protection of Human Subjects (80 FR 53933, Sep. 8, 2015), also known as The Common Rule. The Subcommittees also presented their recommendations for the Committee’s submission of comments to the NPRM. The Committee then discussed those recommendations and, at the December 3-4, 2015 SACHRP meeting, will either accept or modify them for submission to the Docket.
