The Belmont Report: History of Human Subjects Research
The International Compilation of Human Subject Research Protections is a listing of the laws, regulations, and guidelines that govern human subjects research in many countries around the world.
Disclaimer: Though this compilation contains information of a legal nature, it has been developed for informational purposes only and does not constitute legal advice or opinions as to the current operative laws, regulations, or guidelines of any jurisdiction. In addition, because new laws, regulations, and guidelines are issued on a continuing basis, this compilation is not an exhaustive source of all current applicable laws, regulations, and guidelines relating to international human subject research protections. While reasonable efforts have been made to assure the accuracy and completeness of the information provided, researchers and other individuals should check with local authorities and/or research ethics committees before starting international research activities.
See international research for more details.
