NHRRB Guidelines

The purpose of the guidelines is to provide guidance on the review process and conduct of research in the country. The guidelines also assure the research community, general public and research subjects both in advance and by periodic review that appropriate steps are taken to protect the rights and welfare of humans participating as subjects in the research. To accomplish this purpose, the NHRRB uses a group process to review research protocols and related materials (e.g., informed consent documents and investigator brochures).
