The Ethics Committee of Human Sciences (set by the ministry of education and culture) (http://www.tenk.fi/) prepared instructions in 2009 of human science research and its ethical advance evaluation (http://www.tenk.fi/sites/tenk.fi/files/ethicalprinciples.pdf). The University of Oulu abides by the principles.
The Committee was founded in autumn 2012. Its mission is to give statements on non-medical research projects of human sciences and process related ethical questions.
The ethical advance evaluation of medical research is stipulated by law (http://www.finlex.fi/fi/laki/ajantasa/1999/19990488) and is the task of the ethical committee of North Ostrobothnia's hospital district (https://www.ppshp.fi/eettinen_toimikunta).
