The South African Medical Association Research Ethics Committee (SAMAREC) was established by the SA Medical Association (SAMA) in 1992 to evaluate the
ethics of research protocols developed for clinical trials to be conducted in the private healthcare sector.
The main responsibility of SAMAREC is to ensure the protection and respect of the rights, safety and well being of participants involved in clinical trials
and to provide public assurance of that protection by reviewing, approving and providing comment on clinical trial protocols, the suitability of
investigator(s), facilities, methods and procedures used to obtain informed consent.
