The Federal Policy (Common Rule) for the protection of human subjects requires that each institution "engaged" in Federally-supported human subject research file an Assurance with the DHHS Office of Human Research Protections (OHRP). The Assurance formalizes the institution's commitment to protect human subjects.
In addition to the Terms of the Federalwide Assurance, ProHealth Care complies with all applicable regulations and policies set forth in 21 CFR Parts 50 and 56 of the DHHS Food and Drug Administration. The ProHealth Care IRB is registered as such with OHRP.
To verify the current expiration date of ProHealth Care's FWA, go to the OHRP website and use these criteria to search the database: Federalwide Assurance: FWA00014941 IRB Registration: IORG0002642
All persons conducting human subject research at ProHealth Care should be familiar with the Terms of this Assurance.
