Institutional Ethics Committee is an independent body formally designated to review, approve, and monitor biomedical and behavioral research involving humans with the aim to protect the rights and welfare of the participants. It is constituted of medical, non-medical, scientific and non-scientific members whose responsibility is to ensure the protection of the rights, safety and well-being of human participants involved in any research by, among other things, reviewing, approving and providing continuing review of trial protocols and amendments and to provide public assurance of that protection. Timely reviews and safeguarding of high ethical standards formed the basis of the IEC review process which are essential for clinical research including student research, investigator initiated research and multi-center, multinational research. IEC, CHL-Hospitals became functional in October 2006. IEC registered with Drug Controller General of India, under Central Drugs Standards Control Organization (CDSCO) in 2013-2014 and is periodically renewed as per regulations.
