BBMRI-ERIC supports the biobanking community by facilitating compliance with regulatory requirements and best practice standards. Given that the proper consideration of ethical, legal and social issues (ELSI) is key to any biobanking activity, we provide services and tools for researchers who would like to be informed of ELSI matters or have specific ELSI questions.
