Ethical approval: Faculty Ethics Review Board

The general point of departure is that the Faculty Board assumes that all the research at the Faculty of Social and Behavioural Sciences is conducted in an ethically responsible manner in accordance with the prevailing conduct and professional codes and (European, national and international) legislation.

However, it may be that you yourself as a researcher believe that your study should be reviewed in view of, for instance, the participation of human subjects or for the purpose of a publication, grant or otherwise.

The following is a step-by-step plan in order to ascertain if, and by which body, your study should be reviewed.

You find all relevant procedures, and the application form on the website of the FETC: https://intranet.uu.nl/en/faculty-ethics-review-board
