Notification of safety events through a new dedicated Safety Form

Starting June 11, 2018, all notifications of safety events (SE/SAEs, SUSARs, DSUR/ASR, urgent safety notifications, other safety notifications) must be done exclusively through the new Safety Form. This also includes the submission of documents that contain information which reveals treatment assignment in a double-blind study. The submission of safety reports by email or through the main application form will no longer be accepted.

Please read the corresponding FAQ on how to use the new Safety Form before submitting any safety document. Failure to comply with the instructions may result in inspection findings.

The safety form is available under “submit an application / forms available”.

General Data Protection Regulation, GDPR
On 25.5.2018 the European Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) comes into force. swissethics has therefore updated the legal disclaimer (available in German and French).

 

Please read carefully:

  • This site is intended to optimize the submission process by guiding you in the description of your project throughout several preformatted screens;
  • Each screen contains Help to assist you;
  • Your project is saved automatically and you may return to and work on it again before submitting; Draft projects that were never submitted will be deleted after 6 months of inactivity.
    Please backup and archive your projects on your own IT infrastructure. BASEC is not designed and not intended to be an electronic filing system (archive) for your projects.
  • Reread your project carefully before submitting it. Keep in mind that once your project is submitted, the evaluation begins.
  • Once you have submitted a new project you will receive an email with a unique BASEC ID number for your project. This will confirm you that your project has been received by the ethics committee and the evaluation has started. You will receive a second email within 7 days of submission, once the formal check is completed.
  • For quality assurance purposes, all ethics committees in Switzerland can view and consult the submitted project in BASEC. Should you oppose to that, please contact swissethics at info@swissethics.ch before you submit the project.
  • If you need to send an urgent update and your project is currently locked, please contact the Ethics Committee by email, phone or through the support form in the web-portal. (see also this FAQ-entry)
