SIDCER renews the recognition of the AHRI/ALERT Research Ethics Review Committee (AAERC). This prestigious recognition is based on a rigorous assessment of the AAERC’s committee organization including the professional diversity (field of expertise) of its members, the structural arrangements of its office and its being independent in the operation, and its compliance with ICH GCP standards, CIMOS guidelines, WHO standards and operational guidance for ethics review of health related research and surveying and evaluating ethical review practices, EC/IRB standard Operating Procedures and local regulations and standards in ethical review.
The AAERC is committed to conducting ethical reviews of research proposals in a timely and efficient manner, while ensuring that the highest standards of ethical research are maintained. The renewal of our recognition by SIDCER is a testament to our commitment to ethical research and our dedication to protecting the rights and welfare of research participants.
We would like to thank our members for their dedication and hard work in achieving this recognition. We are also grateful to SIDCER FERCAP for their ongoing support and commitment to promoting ethical research practices, and TDR/ WHO for their ongoing support.
