AMSRS Professional Standards: Updates to Guidelines and Factsheets

The AMSRS provides additional support for our members through the development of our AMSRS Guidelines and Factsheets.

Our Guidelines are designed to clarify and/or expand upon aspects of our Code of Professional Behaviour that all members sign up to. They help provide guidance on research practice such as guidelines on interview length, usually prompted by and based on FAQs by members.

Our Fact sheets are designed to inform researchers of regulatory and legal requirements with which they may come into contact when conducting research (eg. MSR and anti-discrimination law).

These documents are reviewed yearly to ensure we are providing you with the most current information within the market and social research industry.

Several of our Guidelines and Factsheets have undergone a review and update recently. Click on the image of each to access the latest version. Please direct any questions about these to our Professional Standards Officer, Jane Gregory

A full list of the AMSRS Guidelines and Factsheets that is available to our members can be found at

Please Note: You will need to be logged into the AMSRS to access the PDFs
