OHRP's 2009 International Compilation of Human Subject Protections laws/regs/guidelines

The newly released 2009 edition of the International Compilation of Human Subject Protections (85 pp) is a compilation, prepared by the Office for Human Research Protections of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services,designed for use by IRBs, researchers, sponsors, and others involved in human subject research around the world.
This Compilation lists the approximately 1,100 laws, regs, and guidelines that govern human subjects research in 92 countries as well as standards from a number of international and regional organizations. Additions from the 2008 Edition include info regarding 7 more countries: Burma, Egypt, Gambia, San Marino, South Korea, Sudan and Vietnam. While reasonable efforts have been made to assure the accuracy and completeness of the info provided, OHRP cautions that researchers and other individuals should check with local authorities and/or research ethics comittees before starting research activities.
Under each country, information is provided under the headings:
General i.e. applicable to most or all types of human subjects research,
drugs,
privacy/data protection,
human biological materials,
genetic,
embryos, stem cells and cloning.
The information also provides info regarding the key organizations that issue the regs/guidelines or serve in a national oversight role for human subjects research, in addition to info regarding the legislation, regs, and guidelines.
The on line document provides links to listed web addresses, in most cases the linked dox are in English or otherwise are an English non-official version of the document.
Clearly this is a valuable resource.
