External Ethics Committee
The Balearic Islands Research Ethics Committee (CEI-IB) reports to the Directorate General for Health Research, Training and Accreditation at the Regional Department of Health and Consumer Affairs of the Government of the Balearic Islands. The CEI-IB acts as an External Ethics Committee for BICUIB.
The CEI-IB is charged with assessing all sample transfer requests made to BICUIB. In those instances where projects using samples do not have a prior ethical review, the CEI-IB assesses both the project and the sample request at the same time.
Moreover, it also assesses proposals to include new sample collections at the Biobank.
