IRDiRC Recognized Resources is a quality indicator, based on a specific set of criteria, that was created to highlight key resources which, if used more broadly, would accelerate the pace of translating discoveries into clinical applications. Any resource compliant with the criteria may apply for the label. Selected platforms, tools, standards, and guidelines must be of fundamental importance to the international rare diseases research and development community.
IRDiRC Recognized Resources criteria encourage long-term sustainability, peer review, and widespread relevance of the platforms, tools, standards, and guidelines. Applications for the label are accepted on a rolling basis and evaluated through a peer-review process by IRDiRC Scientific Committee members as well as experts in the relevant field. It is a public label which can be made visible on and by the resource, giving users an assurance of its quality and appropriateness.
