An additionally individual confidentiality declaration must be signed by each ECLAC researcher, after the researcher proposal is approved by Eurostat. The Researcher will receive this document for signature after the first evaluation of the research project proposal by Eurostat. 


An ECLAC Internal Protocol of Confidentiality must also be signed by every research team named in any research proposal.
