The Health Research Regulations 2018 are important new regulations that are relevant to everyone who is engaged in personal data processing for health research purposes. While new arrangements are being put in place, the HRB will provide support by documenting any queries and providing guidance, where possible, on compliance to the regulations.
The HRB will not respond to individual queries. However we will review all queries submitted and, create a dedicated Health Research Regulations FAQ webpage which will be updated regularly until the secretariat is in place. Before you submit your query, please check it has not already been answered by our guidance, within our FAQs, or by our decision tree.
