The University of Iowa has filed an Federalwide Assurance (FWA) of compliance with the Office of Human Research Protections under FWA00003007. The University of Iowa has assured human subjects research will be guided by the Belmont Report as its statement of principles governing the institution for protecting the rights and welfare of human subjects.

The University of Iowa FWA includes four registered internal Institutional Review Boards (IRB) under IORG# IORG0000070.

The University of Iowa Institutional Review Boards are duly constituted with written procedures for initial and continuing review of human subjects research; written minutes of convened IRB meetings, and an electronic research application system to adhere to records retention requirements of the review and approval process. All documented processes comply with requirements of Food and Drug Administration (FDA) regulations (21 CFR 50 and 21 CFR 56), and Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) regulations (45 CFR 46).  Additionally, IRB-01 and IRB-03 comply with the requirements set forth in FDA regulations (21 CFR 1121 CFR 31221 CFR 812, and 21 CFR 814, Subpart HGood Clinical Practice (GCP) as adopted by the FDA).  The University of Iowa complies with International Conference on Harmonization (ICH), when applicable.  IRB-03 also reviews and approves research in compliance with Department of Veteran Affairs regulations outlined in the Veterans Health Administration Handbook 1200.05.  

The Statement of Compliance  can be used as documentation of the institutional compliance standards in place for the University of Iowa Human Research Protection Program.
