Institutional Review Board Services (IRB Services) has been awarded full accreditation by the Association for the Accreditation of Human Research Protection Programs (AAHRPP).
IRB Services is the first fully independent, unaffiliated Canadian-based research ethics committee to earn Accreditation from AAHRPP.
Founded in 1993, IRB Services is an independent organization dedicated to protecting the rights and safety of human subjects. IRB Services operates research ethics committees in Toronto, Ontario; Montreal, Quebec; and Boca Raton, Florida, which review a wide range of both industry and publicly funded human subject research across multiple disciplines, including Health Canada, Food and Drug Administration, and US Department of Health and Human Services regulated research.
“Since IRB Services operates in an international environment with geographically-dispersed ethics committees dealing with a complex matrix of regulatory and ethical requirements, AAHRPP’s accreditation process has ensured the company meets or exceeds all those obligations and more,” said Jack Corman, president and CEO of IRB Services.
