Federal Policy for the Protection of Human Subjects: Six Month Delay of the General Compliance Date of Revisions While Allowing the Use of Three Burden-Reducing Provisions During the Delay Period
Document Number: 2018-13187
Type: Rule
Date: 2018-06-19
Agency: Agency for International Development, Agencies and Commissions, Department of Transportation, Social Security Administration, National Science Foundation, National Aeronautics and Space Administration, Department of Labor, Department of Housing and Urban Development, Department of Homeland Security, Department of Health and Human Services, Environmental Protection Agency, Department of Energy, Department of Education, Department of Defense, Consumer Product Safety Commission, Department of Commerce, Department of Agriculture, Department of Veterans Affairs
In a final rule published on January 19, 2017, a number of federal departments and agencies revised to the Federal Policy for the Protection of Human Subjects (often referred to as the ``Common Rule''), which each department and agency adopted into regulations in its part of the Code of Federal Regulations (CFR). The Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) adopted the same changes in a final rule published on September 18, 2017. The revised Common Rule was scheduled to become effective on January 19, 2018, with a general compliance date of the same date. By an interim final rule issued on January 17, 2018 and published in the Federal Register on January 22, 2018, federal departments and agencies delayed the effective date and the general compliance date for the revised Common Rule for a 6-month period, until July 19, 2018. The Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) published an interim final rule adopting the same regulatory changes on January 26, 2018. The revised Common Rule, including technical amendments made by the January 22, 2018 interim final rule, is referred to here as the ``2018 Requirements.'' On April 20, 2018, the federal departments and agencies listed here published a notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM) proposing and seeking comments as to whether the general compliance date for the 2018 Requirements should be delayed for an additional 6-month period. The NPRM also proposed and sought comments on whether to allow regulated entities to implement certain burden-reducing provisions of the 2018 Requirements in specified circumstances during such continued delay period. Through this final rule, we are adopting the proposals described in the April 20, 2018 NPRM. This rule delays the general compliance date for the 2018 Requirements for an additional 6-month period, until January 21, 2019. As a result of this delay, regulated entities will be required, with an exception, to continue to comply with the requirements of the pre-2018 version of the Federal Policy for the Protection of Human Subjects (the ``pre-2018 Requirements'') until January 21, 2019. The one exception to this general rule is that institutions will be permitted (but not required) to implement, for certain research, three burden-reducing provisions of the 2018 Requirements during the delay period (July 19, 2018, through January 20, 2019). Those three provisions are: The revised definition of ``research,'' which deems certain activities not to be research covered by the Common Rule; the elimination of the requirement for annual continuing review with respect to certain categories of research; and the elimination of the requirement that institutional review boards (IRBs) review grant applications or other funding proposals related to the research. Institutions taking advantage of the three-burden reducing provisions must comply with all other pre-2018 Requirements during the delay period. The three burden-reducing provisions of the 2018 Requirements can only be implemented during the delay period with respect to studies initiated prior to January 21, 2019 that will transition to compliance with the revised Common Rule. Any study that implements these three burden-reducing provisions during the delay period must, beginning on January 21, 2019, comply with all of the 2018 Requirements for the balance of the study's duration.

This final rule removes DoD's regulation concerning Military Payment Certificates (MPC) which are no longer used by the Federal Government nor DoD based on U.S. Treasury guidance and use of Smart Card technology. MPC's were discontinued in the late 1990's based on the U.S. Treasury determining that the remaining stock from the Vietnam War could no longer be used and it would take several years to replace them with new MPCs. The Army determined that going forward, the EagleCash Stored Value Card (SVC) will be used in lieu of MPC.

Defense Contract Audit Agency (DCAA) Freedom of Information Act Program
Document Number: 2018-12475
Type: Rule
Date: 2018-06-11
Agency: Department of Defense, Office of the Secretary
This final rule removes DoD's regulation concerning the Defense Contract Audit Agency (DCAA) Freedom of Information Act program. On February 6, 2018, the DoD published a revised FOIA program rule as a result of the FOIA Improvement Act of 2016. When the DoD FOIA program rule was revised, it included DoD component information and removed the requirement for component supplementary rules. The DoD now has one DoD-level rule for the FOIA program that contains all the codified information required for the Department. Therefore, this part can be removed from the CFR.
Post-9/11 GI Bill
Document Number: 2018-12457
Type: Rule
Date: 2018-06-11
Agency: Department of Defense, Office of the Secretary
This final rule removes the Department of Defense (DoD) regulation concerning the Post-9/11 GI Bill. In 2009, when first published, this part included significant information explaining the entire program, including the responsibilities of both DoD and the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA). When the part was revised at 78 FR 34251 on June 7, 2013, however, it only addressed DoD responsibilities, as VA responsibilities are now addressed in that agency's regulations. All burdens and responsibilities pertaining to persons who are not members of the Uniformed Services are addressed in VA regulations, and repeal of this regulation will have no effect on VA regulations. Repealing this rule supports website best practices because the public user is linked to the original and appropriate source, VA. This rule is internal to DoD and should be removed.
