Human Biomedical Research Act

28 Sep 2023


Research should always be conducted with integrity, and be of reliable quality to ensure that the health, welfare and safety of research participants remain a paramount consideration at all times.

The Human Biomedical Research Act provides clarity regarding the roles and responsibilities of individuals and body corporates involved in human biomedical research and the handling of human tissue for use in research.

Through the legislation, the Ministry of Health (MOH) strives to ensure that human biomedical research and tissue banking activities carried out in Singapore follow the law and principles of good clinical practice relating to ethics and science to protect the safety and welfare of research subjects and tissue donors.

If you have any questions or concerns about your compliance with the HBRA, please write in to MOH at the following email address
