An institution that is engaged in Human Subjects research that is conducted or supported by any agency of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) must have an assurance of compliance that is accepted and approved by the Office of Human Research Protections (OHRP). This assurance is called a Federalwide Assurance (FWA) and is approved by OHRP. Through the FWA, an institution commits to HHS that it will comply with the requirements in the HHS Protection of Human Subjects regulations.
