Publicity of committee work


As a rule of thumb, the ethical evaluation of research is public but the committee allows for secrecy if required by contracts signed by the financier of the study. Secrecy applies to information that can be published on the committee's page (see below). Other information and documents processed by the committee are not public.

This information can be published in relation to research submitted for evaluation if the researcher does not propose that the information be secret:

•   applicant's justification for the statement request

•    summary of the research plan (from the researcher)

•    committee decision
