SIDCER RECOGNITION PROGRAMME

SIDCER helps build in-country human subjects protection programmes to measure and provide accountability for the quality and effectiveness of ethical review worldwide.
A SIDCER recognition certificate provided to an IRB/IEC is a sign that the highest standards of ethical review in clinical research are being met. These certificates are a valuable assessment of a country's research abilities and growth. See more details.
