A number of Safe Settings operate throughout the UK. This includes government agencies such as the Office for National Statistics Secure Research Service, HMRC Datalab, UK Data Service Secure Lab. Charities such as Cancer Research UK and The Health Foundation have their own Safe Settings.

These are secure environments in which confidential data can be analysed. Data are not released, but the statistics generated from analysis are. These statistics are subject to a process known as Statistical Disclosure Control (SDC) which aims to prevent confidential data being passed out of the secure environment.

This Handbook provides guidelines for undertaking SDC.
