Accreditation: Get Accredited - Overview
Accreditation uses a set of objective Standards to evaluate the quality of an Organization’s human research protection program (HRPP). Through accreditation, an Organization can demonstrate the overall excellence of its HRPP. The accreditation
process involves several steps that are outlined below.
Part 1: Conduct a Self-Assessment
Part 2: Build and Develop an Application
Part 3: Evaluation of Written Materials
Part 4: Evaluation of Practice
Part 5: COUNCIL ON ACCREDITATION REVIEW
PART 6: RESPONSE TO COUNCIL REVIEW
The Council on Accreditation may request that the Organization provide a Status Report after a site visit is complete. If an Organization does not meet accreditation standards, the Council on Accreditation may request that the Organization provide an improvement plan. Accredited Organizations renew their accreditations three years after initial accreditation and every five years thereafter.
