About the Danish National Committee on Health Research Ethics (NVK)

NVK is an independent authority under the Ministry of Health. NVK deals with research projects in particularly complex areas, such as extensive mapping of the individual's genome, in which exemption is applied for in accordance with section 10 of the Committee Act and health data science research projects without biological material with pre-existing genome data or pre-existing imaging data. The NVK is also the appeal body for the committee system.
