Description

The Data Protection and Medical Research in Europe: PRIVIREAL series represents the results of this EC-funded project examining the implementation of Directive 95/46/EC on data protection in relation to medical research and the role of ethics committees in European countries. The series consists of five separate volumes following the complete development of the PRIVIREAL project. This volume relates to the second stage of this project and is concerned with the setting up and role of research ethics committees. It assesses their legal responsibilities, especially with regard to data protection matters and contains reports from more than 20 European countries on these issues. Focusing on the theoretical role and practical operation of research ethics committees and the impact of relevant international and national instruments, this volume will be an essential resource for all those concerned with data protection issues in medical research.

About the Series

Data Protection and Medical Research in Europe : PRIVIREAL

Data Protection and Medical Research in Europe : PRIVIREAL
PRIVIREAL (Data Protection and Medical Research in Europe) is a European Commission funded project examining the implementation of Directive 95/46/EC on data protection in relation to medical research and the role of ethics committees in European countries. PRIVIREAL members and authors are experts in their fields from each country, and the project is co-ordinated by Professor Deryck Beyleveld, Faculty of Law, University of Sheffield. The PRIVIREAL series consists of five separate volumes following the development of the PRIVIREAL project, from first assessments of the implementation of the Directive and its impact on medical research, to consideration of the role of research ethics committees and data protection in practice, leading to recommendations and suggestions to the EC on the implementation of the Directive and the remit to be given to RECs to protect research participants’ rights. The information collected in this series provides a valuable resource for those involved with data protection, medical research, and how they interact. The volumes work to present a comprehensive view of current proceedings right across Europe, including both New Member States and Newly Associated Member States.
