New Edition of the International Compilation of Human Research Standards

2018 Edition now available

The International Compilation of Human Research Standards enumerates over 1,000 laws, regulations, and guidelines (collectively referred to as standards) that govern human subjects research in 130 countries, as well as standards from a number of international and regional organizations. This Compilation was developed for use by researchers, IRBs/Research Ethics Committees, sponsors, and others who are involved in human subjects research around the world.

Content experts from around the world, listed at the back of the Compilation, provided updates (or confirmations of prior listings), which are reflected in the hundreds of changes entered in this Edition. Four new countries are featured in the 2018 Edition: Algeria, Madagascar, Mali, and Saint Lucia. For the first time, this year’s Compilation includes a section on Social-Behavioral Research.
