The International Compilation of Human Subject Research Protections

This compilation is designed to provide institutional review boards and researchers with an overview of countries' ethics regulations and guidelines. It focuses on countries that are major recipients of US government research funding.

As well as providing links to key organisations it offers advice on how to obtain guidelines documents from the countries listed.

The compilation also highlights gaps in ethics regulations in the developing world. It lists 35 countries for which no laws, regulations, or guidelines could be identified.
