Federalwide Assurance (FWA)

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 with the HHS regulations for the protection of human subjects. This assurance is called a Federalwide Assurance (FWA) and is approved by the Office of Human Research Protections (OHRP).

Each institution's FWA is identified by a number that is assigned by OHRP. This number may be requested as part of the IRB review process, especially when research is done collaboratively - involving multiple institutions.
