BND is a Registered IRB with US DHSS

The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) has approved our application for Registration of an Institutional Review Board (IRB). Our certification number is IORG #: IORG0006192 and OMB No. 0990-0279. It will expire on November 17, 2012

We are one of the very few organizations in Southeast Asia which received this approbation from DHSS.

This entitlement will be used by Beta Nu Delta Nursing Society Inc. in its review process:

a) Research involving human subjects conducted or supported by the Department of
Health and Human Services, or other federal departments or agencies that apply
the Federal Policy for the Protection of Human Subjects to such research; and/or
b) Clinical investigations regulated by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) of the
Department of Health and Human Services

Future collaboration with US based researchers will speed up the process as we are already in compliance with basic federal regulations.
