For which projects is a submission to the REK mandatory?

The Regional Committees for Medical and Health Research Ethics (REK) must give prior approval for:

  • Medical and health research projects
  • General research biobanks
  • Exemption from the duty of confidentiality for other types of research. REK may grant exemption from the duty of confidentiality for health information used for non-medical research.

You can read more on the REK website.

General enquiries must be addressed to the REK in your geographical region. You can find contact information for all the REKs here.
