Sphere of action

The committee reviews proposed WMO (Medical Research Involving Human Subjects Act) research organised by the Maastricht University Medical Centre (azM), Maastricht University or one of its affiliated institutions and/or performed by the azM and/or Maastricht University and that will be carried out wholly or partially in, or with the cooperation of (employees of):

  • Maastricht UMC+: the Maastricht University Medical Centre (azM) and/or the Faculty of Health, Medicine and Life Sciences (FHML/UM).
  • Maastricht University where it concerns the Faculty of Psychology and Neuroscience (FPN/UM), except in the case of research that, in accordance with Section 2, paragraph 2, under b of the WMO, has to be reviewed in the first instance by the CCMO.
  • Insofar as the committee has made agreements on the matter in consultation with Board of Directors, the committee can take a similar approach to proposed WMO research organised and/or performed by another institution involved in healthcare in the Netherlands.
  • In the case of multicentre research whereby the committee acts as the assessing MREC, the circle of institutions for which the committee reviews proposed WMO research will be extended to all participating centres in the Netherlands.
