IMPORTANT, SBP, Switzerland, publication


We are excited to announce the publication of our Biobank Regulation template, one of the essential documents for the development of a strong governance.

The Biobank Regulation defines the biobank purpose, activities, organisation and reflects its daily practices. Beyond the compliance with legal requirements and ethical/professional standards, the Regulation promotes transparency, and thus public trust towards research.

This document has been developed by SBP with the expertise of its Governance Advisory Board members  and was submitted to public consultation in Spring 2018. We thank the biobanks and Institutions which contributed to the development of this document.


The template is available for consultation in pdf version.
A Word format that can be adapted to your practices is available.
