Institutional Ethics Committee (IEC)

Institutional Ethics Committee is an independent body constituted of medical, non-medical, scientific and non-scientific members whose responsibility is to ensure the protection of the rights, safety and well-being of human subjects involved in the trial by, among other things, reviewing, approving and providing continuing review of trial protocols and amendments.

Timely reviews and safeguarding of high ethical standards formed the basis of the IEC review process which are essential for clinical research including student research, investigator initiated research and multi-centric multinational research. 

KDAH-IEC became functional in Sept-2009. KDAH-IEC is registered with Drug Controller General of India. This is periodically renewed as per regulations.

Ethics Committee Re-Registration Number: ECR/141/Inst/MH/2013/RR-16
