Reporting and compliance

Principle 14:

Research projects should include appropriate mechanisms and procedures for reporting on ethical aspects of the research and complying with these guidelines.

Researchers and research funding bodies should ensure that there are appropriate, ongoing processes in place for reporting research progress, especially with regard to any actual or potential changes in the ethical conditions/contexts.

Applying the principle

Take appropriate measures in the design, implementation and monitoring of a research project to ensure it complies with these guidelines and the principles they contain at all stages of a project.

Be aware of the risks (including any penalties) that may result from breaches of these guidelines (for instance, where they are part of a funding contract).
