BASEC (Business Administration System for Ethics Committees) is the portal for the submission to the ethics committees: clnical trials, research projects, amendments, notification of safety events, clarification of responsibilities, requests for temporary autorizations, general questions, etc.
BASEC is not an electronic repository (Archiv) for study documents. Consequently, drafts that are not submitted, are deleted after 6 months inactivity.
Therefore, it is required that the sponsors and investigators regularly save and archive the study documents, as well as the letters and emails received from the ethics committee, on their own IT-infrastrukcture.
Detailled information on how to use BASEC can be found in BASEC itself and on the page «Frequently Asked Questions».
