Avaliable language options:
Where CSIRO research requires the involvement or study of people as research subjects and participants, we're committed to the welfare of those participants within the scope of our research activities.
CSIRO's human research can be grouped into two main categories:
All human research undertaken by CSIRO must comply with the values, principles, governance and review processes specified in the National Statement on Ethical Conduct in Human Research (2007) and any relevant state and national legislative requirements such as the Privacy Act (1988). This includes ensuring that any research we do is justified by its potential benefit and is conducted by qualified staff using appropriate methods and resources.
It also commits the organisation and its staff to showing due regard for the privacy, welfare, beliefs, customs and cultural heritage of those involved in our research and their capacity to make their own decisions. These commitments are also reinforced through CSIRO's organisational values.
Further information about human research ethics in CSIRO and what you can expect as a participant in a CSIRO research project can be found in the Human Research Ethics in CSIRO brochure [pdf · 1mb].
