As part of the 21st Century Cures Act OLAW committed to reviewing and revising the guidance for reporting noncompliance. The proposed revisions are now available for public comment through a Request for Information (RFI). The final guidance will be published along with a new webpage once comments have been considered. OLAW expects institutions to comply with NOT-OD-05-034 until the new guidance is finalized. Visit this OLAW website for more details.
The proposed changes can be found here: NOT-OD-23-063
