When unpublished data are submitted directly to my databases I have to make the assumption that the submitter has obtained informed consent from the patient or the patient\'s guardians to do so. It would be desirable that there be a check box on the submission form, for remote submissions, to confirm that ethical consent had indeed been obtained. Failure to check the box would block the submission.
This task depends upon

We believe it would be more efficient to include such a checkbox, possibly together with more "guidelines", on the submitter registration form. Do you agree?

No I disagree. It's a simple reminder EACH TIME that ethical issues need to be taken into account. Another reason is that submitter accounts might be shared within an organisation so that there is just a single point of contact back to the submitters. In such a scenario, not all of the actual submitters will have necessarily acknowledged the need for an ethical approach.

I still think that there should be a checkbox on the submitter form with a link to the guidelines.

Hi Raymond,
I found this report in my email from long time ago - do you still require this option? You can create a checkbox field yourself using the custom column feature, make it a mandatory field, make it non-public but show it on public forms, and it will do what you want.
