The AAHRPP Accreditation Program

The AAHRPP Accreditation Program is a voluntary, peer driven, educationally-based model of accreditation. It seeks to recognize high-quality Human Research Protection Programs of research organizations. AAHRPP's Accreditation Standards meet or exceed U.S. federal regulatory requirements and the International Committee on Harmonisation — Good Clinical Practice (E6) guideline for protection, and are reasonable, attainable, and representative of current best practices.

Any public or private (non-profit or for-profit) organization that is located in or outside the United States and engaged in human research may be accredited. The organization seeking accreditation, referred to as the "Organization," must have a "Human Research Protection Program," as defined by the Accreditation Standards.
