Public Health Surveillance Activities Deemed Not to Be Research

Posted

The revised Common Rule identifies certain public health surveillance activities as being excluded from applicability of the Common Rule. Although we anticipate that the determination of NIH-funded research qualifying as a public health surveillance activity will be extremely rare, NIH will have a process for requesting use of this exclusion.

Important things for applicants to keep in mind:

  • Write your application and plan your budget as though the exclusion request will not be approved
  • Notify your NIH Program Official/Program Director if you intend to submit the public health surveillance exclusion request as early as possible. You will have the opportunity to submit a compelling justification for this exclusion during the just-in-time process.
