The Office for Human Research Protections (OHRP) has developed an International Compilation of Human Subject Research Protections. The Compilation provides listings of over 1,000 laws, regulations, and guidelines on human subject protections in 130 countries, as well as standards issued by a number of international and regional organizations.
The listings are organized into nine categories:
1. General Research
2. Drugs and Devices
3. Clinical Trial Registries
4. Research Injury
5. Social-Behavioral Research
6. Privacy/Data Protection
7. Human Biological Materials
8. Genetic Research
9. Embryos, Stem Cells, and Cloning
Most of the listings include a hyperlink that allows the user to directly access the law, regulation, or guideline of interest. The Compilation (last updated March 2022) can be accessed on the OHRP website.
Compilation of European GDPR Guidance
The Office for Human Research Protections has created a resource that lists the data protection authorities of all European countries that fall under the new E.U. General Data Protection Directive (GDPR). For each country, the compilation also provides the links to any general GDPR guidance, as well as specific guidance on the topics of Research, Legal Basis, Consent, and International Data Transfer.
The new Compilation is available at https://www.hhs.gov/ohrp/international/index.html
