At CGIRB, we know that time is critical.
That’s why we measure our turn-around time in hours, not days.
But we recognize that speed is nothing without quality. For us, time and accuracy go hand-in-hand. In fact, we are one of the only IRBs in the industry (the only other being our sister company, Western IRB), to achieve ISO 9001:2008 certification by the International Standards Organization (ISO) in recognition of our rigorous quality and Lean Six Sigma initiatives.
We employ state-of-the-art technologies and processes to ensure that we get it right- every time. Because when human lives are at stake, there’s no room for error.
Ensuring Quality. Fostering Compliance.
- In our history, we have maintained a pristine audit record and hosted visits from every major accrediting body and client.
- CGIRB is AAHRPP-accredited and is comprised of the most rigorously trained and carefully selected members.
- Our compliance and quality assurance teams hail from FDA, AAHRPP, and PRIM&R.

IRB Registration & FWA
The Federalwide Assurance (FWA) is only required for institutions (legal entities) engaged in federally funded research. CGIRB is an independent IRB that does not receive federal funding and is not engaged in research; therefore, CGIRB does not maintain an FWA number. For sites or sponsors utilizing CGIRB’s services, CGIRB should be listed as a designated IRB on the institution’s FWA.
CGIRB is registered with the Office of Human Research Protections (OHRP) and FDA as IRB00001313.
