National Statement on Ethical Conduct in Human Research
This National Statement on Ethical Conduct in Human Research (‘National Statement’) is intended for use by:
- any researcher conducting research with human participants;
- any member of an ethical review body reviewing that research;
- those involved in research governance; and
- potential research participants.
This brief guide describes the structure of the document and suggests how each of these groups might use it. Note that ‘review body’ refers both to Human Research Ethics Committees (HRECs) and to non-HREC review bodies.
