Site Visitors

Tip Sheets

AAHRPP site visitors review applications and conduct their own comprehensive peer-review assessment, which includes an on-site evaluation.

Site visitors evaluate the Human Research Protection Program's performance with respect to the AAHRPP Accreditation Standards. Each Organization is evaluated by a team of not fewer than two individuals chosen by AAHRPP. The site team leader is a member of AAHRPP's Council on Accreditation or an experienced site visitor.
