G1. Insurance certificate for WMO research

People participating in research covered by the Medical Research Involving Human Subjects Act (WMO) must be insured against any potential damages incurred as a result of participating in the research. The insurance must comply with specific regulations stated in the Compulsory Insurance Decree in Medical Research Involving Suman Subjects (dd 1-7-2015). Exemption from this insurance obligation is possible under certain conditions. In this case, a request must be included in the submitted application. Even if exemption from the WMO insurance obligation is granted, the liability insurance must still be covered.

If the research is carried out by an ministerial appointed institution, service or governmental organization, such as those which fall under the Ministry of Health, Welfare and Sport, or the Ministry of Defence, then a WMO human subject insurance or a liability insurance is not needed (section 7, sub 10 WMO).
