Waivers of informed consent for research are permitted in the United States under the Common Rule, HIPAA regulations, and the FDA’s Exception from Informed Consent rule for emergency research.

Discussion Objectives

  • Assess what legal right researchers have to carry out research procedures without the permission of subjects
  • Discuss whether it is reasonable to believe that subjects from whom no consent is sought would agree, if asked
  • Review what is known about participation and refusal rates in US-based research
  • Address necessity for justification of waivers in terms of the social utility and acceptability of research
