Asso­ci­a­tion of Med­ical Ethics Com­mit­tees in Germany

In 1983 the Asso­ci­a­tion of Med­ical Ethics Com­mit­tees in Ger­many was founded. It cur­rently has 52 Med­ical Ethics Com­mit­tees as mem­bers, which are in charge for med­ical research and are set up accord­ing to state law. The Asso­ci­a­tion pro­tects patients, vol­un­teers and researchers.

The Asso­ci­a­tion mon­i­tors the work of the Ethics Com­mit­tees, espe­cially in decision-​making and pro­ce­dural mat­ters. It offers con­tin­u­ing edu­ca­tion on the work of Med­ical Ethics Com­mit­tees and pro­motes the exchange of ideas and expe­ri­ence both nation­ally and inter­na­tion­ally. The Asso­ci­a­tion also is involved in the con­cerns of Med­ical Ethics Com­mit­tees in pub­lic discourse.
