Declaration of Helsinki and ENCePP

The most recent version of the Declaration of Helsinki was adopted by the 64th World Medical Association (WMA) General Assembly in October 2013. Of particular note for ENCePP are the obligations relating to research registration and publication of results (Articles 35 and 36 of the Declaration). Every research study involving human subjects must be registered in a publicly accessible database before recruitment of the first subject. The implications of the amendments for ENCePP outputs including the Register of Studies (EU PAS Register) and the Code of Conduct will be considered by the network in further detail in the coming months.
