The Ethical Commission for Experimental Research of the Universitat de València is an advisory organism that assesses the ethical issues resulting from the development of research projects.

If the research protocols affect subjects or biological samples from other institutions, a positive assessment will be needed from their respective ethical commissions or similar bodies.

Any research that includes humans, human biological samples, animals, pathogenic biological agents or genetically modified organisms will be examined. The effect of the research in terms of life and the environment will be also considered.
