I. Background

On October 1, 2015, at 80 FR 59092, HUD published a proposed rule in the Federal Register on Federal Policy for the Protection of Human Subjects. HUD's proposed rule adopted the policy on the protection of human subjects set forth in a proposed rule issued by the Department of Health and Human Services and 15 other Federal Departments and Agencies and published on September 8, 2015, at 80 FR 53933. Through the September 8, 2015, and October 1, 2015, rules, the Federal Departments and Agencies proposed revisions to modernize, strengthen, and make more effective the Federal Policy for the Protection of Human Subjects that was promulgated as a Common Rule in 199, and sought comment on the proposed revisions through December 7, 2015.

Since the proposed rules were published in September and October, respectively, requests have been made to extend the public comment period to allow time to more thoroughly review the proposed revisions offered for comment by the Federal Departments and Agencies. The Department of Health and Human Services and the 15 other Federal Department Agencies have extended the time to submit public comments on the September 8, 2015, proposed rule to January 6, 2016, and HUD extends its public comment period for its October 1, 2015, proposed rule to this same date—January 6, 2016.
