AAHRPP Accreditation

Full Accreditation

The Einstein IRB has been fully accredited by the Association for the Accreditation of Human Research Protection Programs (AAHRPP) since July 2021.

AAHRPP accreditation uses a set of objective standards to evaluate the quality and level of protection that an organization provides research participants. Through accreditation, an organization can demonstrate the overall excellence of its research program by providing the most comprehensive protections for research participants. The accreditation process involves self-assessment, peer-assessment, and continuous quality improvement and review.
