About the CWA
The research results from work packages 1 and 4 have been used as the basis for a CEN Workshop Agreement (CWA). Existing procedures and best practices in ethics assessment were translated into a practical tool to implement ethics assessment. It is a reliable reference for any organizations and persons who would like to to set up or improve ethics assessment.
CWA 17145:2017 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 is in two parts. 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.
A CEN Workshop Agreement (CWA) is a “pre-standard.” It is a document that is drafted in a multistakeholder process and is based on consensus, but the development process is quicker and less rigorous than with a full standard.
About Part 2 of the CWA
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.
