The PEP Research Ethics Review Committee (RERC) is currently composed of three members and will be responsible to ensure the highest ethical standards in research supported or undertaken by PEP. The RERC will review research projects that involve randomized experiments with human participants that are supported either financially and/or technically by PEP.

RERC will follow and apply accepted ethical standards and guidelines in conducting all the reviews and communicate its findings and recommendations to the Executive Director of PEP.
