National Ethics Standards for Health and Disability Research - submissions now available

Summary of submissions 

NEAC extends their thanks to all of those who submitted and participated in meetings to support the public consultation of the National Ethics Advisory Committee’s National Ethics Standards for Health and Disability Research.

NEAC have produced a summary of submissions, and will continue to work directly with researchers, research organisations, the public and other government agencies to ensure that feedback is consistently understood and considered.

Next steps

NEAC will be developing a second draft over the coming months, and will consult with key stakeholders to ensure it is fit for purpose. NEAC aim to have a final copy of the Standards completed in late July 2019.
