What are the common pillars of ethics and compliance management?

Dr Ted Rohr - Director of Research Ethics & Compliance Support, UNSW Sydney

Starting from different historical roots, various ethics and compliance environments evolved distinct terminology and processes. The terminology used in human ethics is very different to that in animal ethics or gene technology. The management of research in these fields requires specialist knowledge by researchers as well as by research managers and committee members. Some fields, in particular clinical trials governance, have reached an international standard whereas in others practices and regulatory frameworks are highly localised or, in some countries or institutions, non-existent. For research managers, this can be in the way of their career advancement by encouraging retention in a particular specialist area and making it hard to establish a similar career in a different country. Here, I deconstruct the components of ethics and compliance management to find the common pillars of management in human ethics, animal ethics and gene technology. I will then show how these pillars can be used to construct environments for new technologies such as drones and compliance requirements such as export controls to react to rapidly evolving technologies. I will also demonstrate how these pillars can be used to design an effective ethics and compliance management environment.
