ECRIN Data Center Certification

ECRIN Independent Certification Board (ICB)

Certification of non-commercial European data centres

The ICB is composed of a chair and independent expert members, all of whom are senior staff with significant experience in clinical research. They are nominated by ECRIN countries.

The ICB conducts an objective, independent assessment of audit results and auditor reports, and awards certification or requests a re-audit or CAPA document review (after which the certification decision is re-considered).
