Council for International Organizations of Medical Sciences

The Council for International Organizations of Medical Sciences (CIOMS) is an UNESCO in 1949.

CIOMS serves the scientific interests of the international biomedical community in general and has been active in promulgating guidelines for the ethical conduct of research, among other activities. CIOMS promulgated guidelines in 1993 entitled International Ethical Guidelines for Biomedical Research Involving Human Subjects. These 15 guidelines address issues including informed consent, standards for external review, recruitment of participants, and more. The Guidelines are general instructions and principles of ethical biomedical research.[1]

Guidelines for human subjects

The International Ethical Guidelines for Biomedical Research Involving Human Subjects, sometimes informally referred to as CIOMS Guidelines, is a set of ethical principles regarding human experimentation created in 1993 by CIOMS and updated in 2002. These 21 guidelines (15 in the original report) address issues including Informed consent, standards for external review, recruitment of participants, and more. The Guidelines are general instructions and principles of ethical biomedical research.[2]

Guidelines for animal testing

The Council has also issued International Guiding Principles for Biomedical Research Involving Animals.[2]
