All Rutgers IRBs are guided by the ethical principles regarding all research involving humans as subjects, as set forth in the report of the National Commission for the Protection of Human Subjects of Biomedical and Behavioral Research (entitled: Ethical Principles and Guidelines for the Protection of Human Subjects of Research also known as, the Belmont Report), regardless of whether the research is subject to Federal regulation or with whom conducted or source of support (i.e., sponsorship/funding source).
All institutional and non-institutional performance sites for this institution, whether they are domestic or international, will be obligated by this institution to conform to ethical principles which are at least equivalent to those of this institution, as cited in the previous paragraph or as may be determined by the DHHS Secretary.

Several non-HHS federal departments and agencies have additional regulations in place for research involving special populations or for human subjects research in general. Investigators are encouraged to review the regulations of the funding agency to determine whether additional regulations apply. Also, many agencies have not adopted subparts B, C, or D and grantees of those agencies are not necessarily bound by them. Investigators/Grantees should consult their respective funding agency for specific guidance and/or requirements.
