Information about how registered users can apply for access to Controlled data via the UK Data Service Secure Lab.
Access to the Secure Lab is available to researchers who can fulfil the access requirements for the data required:
Attend a training course
Before users can access any Controlled data they must have successfully completed the Safe Researcher training course. The UK Data Service holds these courses in London and Colchester, and users who apply for access will be contacted to arrange attendance. Workshops in London and Colchester are temporarily suspended and users who apply will be contacted regarding online arrangements. See Covid-19.
After attending the training course, and passing the associated test, users will be provided with their login credentials for access to the UK Data Service Secure Lab.
Note: The training course is part of the ONS Approved Researcher Scheme to become an ONS Accredited Researcher.
We expect to run as normal a service as possible during this COVID-19 (Coronavirus) emergency. Please visit our COVID-19 page for the latest information.
