Comité Ético de Investigación Clínica Regional (CEIC-R) de la Comunidad de Madrid. English version

The Regional Ethics Committee for Clinical Research (CEIC-R) of the Community of Madrid was officially founded on the 1st of February 1995. Ever since, the CEIC-R has been working following its Standard Operating Procedures- SOPs- ("Procedimientos Normalizados de Trabajo, PNT), in agreement with specifications in annex III of Decree 39/1994, issued on the 28th of April 1994 by the Government of Madrid Community

Therefore, more than ten years have passed since that first meeting of the CEIC-R. Throughout all this time, personalities of sound prestige in their respective professional fields have integrated this Committee. Thanks to their strong committment and dedication, the Committee has been able to carry out an outstanding work.

Part of this work includes a rigorous approach in the evaluation of all different methodological, ethical and legal issues followed by a deliberation process. Thereafter, decissions are made based on objective and explicit criteria.

This has all set an example to follow by other Ethical Committees for Clinical Research, not only in the region of Madrid but also in other Spanish regions.

The CEIC-R agreed upon publishing all its proceedings in a comprehensive manner. This particularly important decision provides fully transparent information on the modus operandi and functioning of the CEIC-R.

The experience is included in its "1995-2000 Activity Report", recently published by the Healthcare Chancellery. This publication is now available upon request, yet only in its Spanish version.

Finally, here we wish to acknowledge all the people that integrate or have integrated the CEIC-R, for their outstanding professional contribution.

We also wish to express our gratitude to all those who have contributed with their work at the Healthcare Chancellery to improve the standards of quality of clinical research in the region on Madrid.
Healthcare Regulatory Service. The CEIC-R is comprising the following members:
