3. To determine compliance with regulatory requirements, including those relating to protecting research subjects.

The primary responsibility of oversight bodies (such as an IRB or IACUC) is to determine compliance with regulatory requirements, including those relating to protecting research subjects.


Context:

The purpose of the IACUC is to ensure humane treatment of any and all laboratory and classroom animals; ensure availability of appropriate veterinary care; ensure proper training and safety of laboratory and classroom workers.

The purpose of IRB is to assure that appropriate steps are taken to protect the rights and welfare of humans participating as subjects in the research.
