AAHRPP uses a voluntary, peer-driven and educational model to ensure that a Human Research Protections Program (HRPP) meets rigorous standards for quality and protection. The goals of accreditation are to improve the systems that protect the rights and welfare of individuals who participate in research, and to communicate to the public the strength of an organizations commitment to the protection of human research participants.
