Welcome to the website of The Foundation BEBO. We are an independent, non-institutional Medical Research Ethics Committee (MREC) that reviews medical scientific research with human subjects. We review research files from pharmaceutical industries, contract research organizations (CRO’s) and researchers of healthcare institutions. The activitities of a MREC are governed by the ‘Wet Medisch-wetenschappelijk Onderzoek met Mensen’ (WMO).
We focus on reviewing all phases of drug research, including First in Human. We also assess whether research is compulsory under the WMO and we participate in the Voluntary Harmonization Procedure (VHP). The MREC of Foundation BEBO is recognized by the Central Committee on Human Research (in Dutch Centrale Commissie Mensgebonden Onderzoek, CCMO) and accredited by the Dutch Association of MRECs (in Dutch Nederlandse vergeniging van METC’s, NVMETC).
The English website is still under construction. When the website is ready we will make an announcment. Until then, we refer you to the Dutch website where all the necessary information has been brought up to date.
We will state important announcements in English, which can be found on the right.
