TRE Data access agreement template


This Data Access Agreement (DAA) is freely available to use and is intended for use where data is accessed within a Trusted Research Environment (TRE) for the purposes of research and development for the public good. 

The DAA has been developed by the TRE Legal Toolkit Action Force of the Pan UK Data Governance Steering Group. The Pan-UK Data Governance Steering Group is a working Group of the UK Health Data Research Alliance representing data custodians and policymakers across the four nations. The Steering Group is focused on simplifying and streamlining data access governance processes.

The DAA terms and conditions should not be modified. The annexes are customisable to allow for differences between TREs. 


We wish to encourage widespread adoption of this template and it is freely available to use. If you do plan to adopt this template or would like to discuss any queries please get in touch with: Rachel Brophy, Information and Research Governance manager HDR UK ( cc:

Please see version control document for details of changes.
