Ok, got it
The Ethics and Oversight Committee has an advisory role and may be consulted by the Management Group or the Board on specific issues. Constituent bodies of the ESC and individual members may raise an issue and contact the Ethics Committee that decides itself whether to deal with that issue, refer it to other instances or discard it. It will draw up an Ethical Conduct Policy and issue general recommendations on ethical principles of professional and scientific conduct related to the research or management of cardiovascular disease.
The Committee can deal with specific issues of professional or scientific misconduct of individual members or of different bodies of the ESC if it affects the ESC as an organisation and make recommendations to the Management Group or Board.
The ESC Ethics and Oversight Committee shall conduct its activities in accordance with a Charter approved by the Board of the ESC.
The Ethics Committee consists of seven members.
Volunteers in officer positions of the ESC cannot be members of the Ethics and Oversight Committee.
The Ethics and Oversight Committee will report annually to the General Assembly.
