Self-assessment

The ethics self-assessment process aims to offer researchers an easy-to-use framework to review the ethics of their projects throughout the research cycle. The NSDEC Secretariat can support you when completing the self-assessment by offering guidance and training in the process.

The self-assessment provides a timely means to identify ethical issues and shape future discussions. The process aims to support an accurate and consistent estimation of the “ethical risks” of research proposals.

In line with our commitment to transparency, information about all projects approved via the self-assessment route will be published shortly on the UK Statistics Authority website.

The self assessment form can be found in the Downloads section on the right. The Data Ethics team can support you when completing the self-assessment by offering guidance and advice- please contact us, at nsdec@statistics.gov.uk.
