A collection of current and upcoming guidance resources in one place

Download the BHBIA's Use of AI in Market Research Guidance:

Fundamental Principles:

In any market research project, you should consider the following principles: 

  • Will personal data be collected?
  • Do you have consent to process it?
  • Are you aware of the risks?
  • Have you conducted Privacy and Data Protection due diligence checks?

 This is still the same with a project that will potentially use AI to process data.

BHBIA Quick Guides:

The following BHBIA Quick Guides include current guidance on these fundamental principles.

What other legislation or guidance is expected? Where can I stay up to date?

With the EU AI act expected imminently and the UK and US governments taking a slightly different approach with the current “Pro-Innovation approach to AI regulation” and "AI Bill of Rights", the BHBIA Ethics and Compliance committee will update this page with new information and resources as they become available.

UK BI professionals can keep up to date on AI legislation and policy updates, and their impact on UK healthcare market research through the BHBIA, MRS and ICO. 

If in doubt, submit a guidelines query to ask for support.
