Secure Lab data COVID-19 update

Non-ONS Secure Access data

We are very pleased to announce that we have been successful in agreeing a set of nine additional conditions of use that will enable users to access non-ONS Secure Access data from home, on a temporary basis. These measures mitigate against the additional risks posed by people working outside their institutional environment and provide assurance to data owners. This applies only to the current temporary lockdown period where users are unable to travel to their work site, and ONLY where data owners have agreed.

Users of non-ONS Secure Access data must complete our Secure Access additional agreement: COVID-19 temporary home working (Non-ONS data), where they will need to agree to the additional specified conditions. They will then be permitted to use their organisationally/institutionally approved method of remotely accessing their organisational/institutional office computer, at the location specified in their application, and using only the IP address we have on record.

Data owners who have agreed to the new arrangements, and the relevant datasets, are listed below. Please note carefully any additional restrictions required by data owners in the table. Use of data from home not listed below will constitute a breach of the agreement. New owners are being added regularly, so please continue to check here.

Users who breach the agreement will face a ban for a minimum of six months from using any data provided by the UK Data Service. 

Important note: Access to ONS data has tighter restrictions. Please read how to request access to any project using ONS data: Secure Lab data COVID-19 update ONS Secure Access Data.
