||Secretary’s Advisory Committee on Human Research Protections (SACHRP)
SACHRP provides expert advice and recommendations to the Secretary, through the Assistant Secretary for Health, on issues and topics pertaining to or associated with the protection of human research subjects. The committee is composed of 11 appointed voting members, with additional ex-officio members from Common Rule government agencies. SACHRP presently has two working subcommittees, the Subpart A Subcommittee (SAS) and the Subcommittee on Harmonization (SOH). The October 2014 meeting will include reports from both subcommittees, including discussion of the following topics: regulatory issues involving big data, the return of research results, the FDA draft guidance on informed consent, consent for minimal risk research, and cluster randomized studies. A guest speaker will address consent in minimal risk studies. OHRP will also present a report on incident reporting and corrective action plans. Time is allotted on both days for public comment.
