The Reform of UK Research Ethics Committees: Throwing the Baby Out With the Bath Water?
Journal of Medical Ethics 2005 August; 31(8): 487-489
On 1 May 2004 research ethics committees became legally accountable to a new government body, the United Kingdom Ethics Committee Authority. This marks the end of the self regulation of research ethics. This paper describes how this change in research ethics committee status has come about and explores the implications for research subjects, researchers, institutions, and for regulation of research.
