Application Submission

All applications for ethics review must be submitted electronically. Your application will need to be submitted as a single pdf document which contains the electronic signatures of both the Principal Researcher and Head of Department and includes any supporting documentation, all in one file.

Data Protection Registration

If you are proposing to collect personal data i.e. data from which a living individual can be identified you must be registered with the UCL Data Protection Officer before you submit your ethics application for review. If the Data Protection Officer advises you to make changes to the way in which you propose to collect and store the data this should be reflected in your ethics application form. We will be unable to accept an ethics application which does not contain your Data Protection Registration number in Section A2 of your application so you will need to plan ahead.
