FWA & IRB Registrations

 

Federalwide Assurance (FWA) Information

 

The Federal Policy (Common Rule) for the protection of human subjects requires that each institution "engaged" in Federally-supported human subject research file an Assurance with the DHHS Office of Human Research Protections (OHRP). The Assurance formalizes the institution's commitment to protect human subjects. UCLA's Federalwide Assurance (FWA00004642) was approved in January 2003 and remains active unless otherwise notified. The FWA expiration date is revised each time UCLA's FWA is modified.

To verify the current expiration date of UCLA's FWA, go to the OHRP website (http://ohrp.cit.nih.gov/search) and use these criteria to search the database:

  • Document Type: Assurances (FWAs)
  • FWA Number: 00004642


Below is a sample search result. The "Type" column verifies that U of California Los Angeles has an FWA and the "Status" column verifies it is active.  By clicking on the institution name listed in the "Institution" column, the current expiration date of the FWA can be verified. Note: the link below is inactive.

IRB Registration Information

 

The UCLA general campus IRBs are registered with OHRP and the medical IRBs are registered with OHRP and FDA.  To verify that UCLA's IRBs are registered (i.e., active) with OHRP and FDA, go to the OHRP website (http://ohrp.cit.nih.gov/search) and use these criteria to search the database:

  • Document Type: Institutional Review Boards (IRBs)
  • IRB Number: Use the one of the following UCLA IRB numbers
    • Medical IRB 1 (MIRB1): 00000172
    • Medical IRB 2 (MIRB2): 00000173
    • Medical IRB 3 (MIRB3): 00004473
    • North General Campus IRB (NGIRB): 00000174
    • South General Campus IRB (SGIRB): 00004474

 

Below is a sample search result. The "IRB Type" column verifies the IRB is registered with both OHRP and FDA and the "Status" column indicates the registration is active. Note: the link below is inactive.
