All research proposals involving living human participants and the collection and/or study of data derived from living human participants undertaken by UCL students or staff (to include honorary staff, affiliate academics and visiting researchers) on UCL premises and/or by UCL staff or students elsewhere requires ethical approval to ensure that the research conforms with general ethical principles and standards.

It is the responsibility of the Head of Department as outlined in the Academic Manual: Duties and Responsibilities of Heads Of Department to ensure that staff and students of the Department are apprised of UCL's arrangements for research governance and the associated procedures, the main components of which include UCL's Statement for Research Integrity and associated research integrity website as well as the UCL REC: constitution, terms of reference and guidelines.
