BCHRD ERC working towards Registration and Accreditation this 2014
The Ethics Review Committee ensures that the researches involving human participants conform to the ethical standards and principles towards respect for sanctity and dignity of man (PCHRD Annual Journal 2003). DOST Administrative Order 001 Series of 20018 states that research ethics registration is mandatory.
