The corona virus also does not stop at the ethics commissions. Not all the scheduled committee meetings can be held regularly at the various locations. This means that there may be delays in the decision-making process and therefore deadlines cannot always be met. The ethics committees thank you for your understanding.

Nevertheless, the reviews and approvals of studies investigating the disease or investigational medicinal products for COVID-19 are of course treated with priority.

We thank you for your cooperation in this critical situation. In individual cases, the ethics committees are available to answer questions on this matter directly.
