    This paper deals with the situated practices by which researchers doing fieldwork ask to their informants for the autorization to record them. Issues such as informed consent and participant’s autorization are considered as topic for analysis and not as a matter of methodological recommandations or personal jugments. Thus, the perspective adopted here focus on the practical activities of researchers as they are observably documented in audio taped interactions with informants. Based on their detailed transcripts, analysis describes the recurrent procedures researchers adopt in order to ask for permission to audiotape social interactions as well as their systematic sequential position within the ongoing interaction. Based on ethnomethodologically inspired conversation analysis, this approach deals with informed consent and autorization as practical accomplishments locally situated within talk-in-interaction.
