CEN/WS SATORI Ethical impact assessment framework for research and innovation

This document, (CWA 17145-1:2017) sets requirements and provides guidelines for ethics assessment in research and innovation (R&I).
The CWA aims to improve the quality of ethics assessment and to harmonize ethics assessment practices.
The CWA has two parts:
- part 1: Ethics committee. This part provides recommendations for ethics committees on practices and procedures;
- part 2: Ethical impact assessment framework. Part 2 provides a practical, policy-oriented guide for researchers and ethics committees on the different stages of the ethical impact assessment (EIA) process.
Both parts of the CWA are of interest to organisations or agents who are involved in performing, commissioning or funding research and innovation, and therefore have a responsibility to address ethical issues.
The focus of the CWA is on ethics assessment, not on ethical guidance.
