Mission, functions and areas of action

The Ethics Committee for research with medicinal products (CEIm) is an independent body which, in accordance with the corresponding legal provisions, ensures that the rights, safety and wellbeing of clinical trial subjects are protected. The CEIm provides public assurance of that protection by reviewing and approving clinical trial protocols and the methods used to collect and document the informed consent of the subjects and by ensuring the suitability of investigators, facilities and materials.

More specifically, its functions are as follows:

  • To assess the methodological, ethical and legal aspects of:
    • Clinical trials with medicines and medical products
    • Observational studies
    • Pharmacodynamic and pharmacogenetic studies
    • Studies evaluating psychological treatments and surgical procedures.
    • Studies involving invasive procedures and the use of health data (medical records and biological samples).
  • To evaluate amendments and modifications to projects approved by the CEIC.
  • To track and monitor clinical trials with drugs and clinical research with medical products.
