The Common Rule for Protection of Human Subjects

The Common Rule for Protection of Human Subjects regulates how Johns Hopkins obtains, uses, and shares identifiable data about living individuals in connection with federally-funded human subjects research, and requires IRB review of some secondary research involving existing identifiable information. As a matter of policy, Johns Hopkins extends these protections to all clinical trial data.

Researchers from the Johns Hopkins Medical Institutions should contact the Johns Hopkins IRB that serves their institution to seek a determination regarding whether their research activity is subject to the Common Rule.

Researchers not affiliated with the Johns Hopkins Medical Institutions will need to contact the IRB of their home institution to seek a determination regarding whether their research activity is subject to the Common Rule, in addition to applying for a waiver of authorization from the Privacy Board of the Johns Hopkins Medical Institutions. See form D-2.
