Federal Guidelines and Belmont Report

The SSU IRB is required by law to follow the federal regulations for the Protection of Human Research Subjects, 45 CFR 46. In making decisions, we also refer to the ethical principles set forth in the “Belmont Report Ethical Principles and Guidelines for the Protection of Human Subjects of Research” (Belmont Report), which is from the National Commission for the Protection of Human Subjects of Biomedical and Behavioral Research. Below are the links to both of these documents:
