  5. Broad Consent and related exemptions 7 & 8 will not be implemented at GS because broad consent restrictions are highly restrictive for investigators.  In order to comply with the conditions of broad consent, the institution/researcher would be obligated to track data for each subject offered broad consent.  In addition, if a participant in the study declined to provide broad consent, future researchers would be barred from obtaining a waiver of consent for secondary research.
