Workforce Quality Accreditation Gold
IAOCR is the world leader in clinical research competence verification and accreditation.

In addition to accrediting indivdual Clinial Research Professioanls, we work with organizations and clinical trial sites around the world who are committed to improving the safety, effectiveness and efficiency of clinical trials by addressing the human factors that work alongside the technologies and processes.

We do this either through individual accreditation of your employees, accreditation of your organization, accreditation of your clinical research sites/partners or a combination of these services. For organizations offering clinical research training, we can quality assure your training, ensuring that program content is aligned with core global competencies established by the industry. Further, we can work with you to design and build your workforce infrastructure to ensure that competency verification runs through all of your HR processes from onboarding and throughout the employee lifecycle to both attract staff and increase engagement and retention.

Quality assuring people and processes also enables organizations to adopt a ‘right first time’ and ‘quality built in’ approach (demonstrating compliance with ICH-GCP E8 R1) through high quality clinical trials workforces, giving sponsors and patients confidence that they are in safe hands. 

All of our competence-based accreditation frameworks and programs are developed from global core competencies established by industry leaders. Working within a regulated environment, our programs are mapped to the International Standard Classification of Education Framework developed by UNESCO and, are subject to rigorous assessment and a two-step independent verification process making them the most robust and respected in the industry.
