11. Ethics Committee approval

Each participating centre will need to obtain ethics approval from their local Ethics Committee prior to the start of the study and document this on the Centre Report. If a centre does not have a local Ethics Committee, then approval must be sought from some other source such as an Education Board, or a local health authority and this information must also be documented on the Centre Report.
