Policies and procedures
Both researchers and their projects are held up against strict eligibility criteria.
The Approvals Panel made sure the process of granting access to sensitive, linked administrative data was fair, equitable and transparent. The Panel met monthly to discuss and approve projects. The meeting minutes are published on this website.
The Network operates according to the principles of the “5 Safes of Data Sharing”.
The ADRN has established strict procedures and protocols based on best practice and legislation to protect people’s privacy and de-identify the data before it is used for research.
To protect the privacy of data and ensure the utmost security, it is compulsory for researchers using the ADRN to analyse their data sets in a secure environment that adheres to the strictest security standards.
There are laws and regulations governing how we use administrative data for research.
This section contains documentation for the assistance of users of the Network.
Before you are allowed to access any data in our secure environments, you will be required to complete our Safe Users of Research data Environment Training - also known as SURE training.
