Submission of a new research project by the 11.00 a.m. deadline is not a guarantee that a project will be accepted for review by the HREC at its next meeting.
Following the submission deadline each month, all projects received will be carefully checked to ensure that projects meet the criteria required to allow a thorough review of the project. Any project not meeting these criteria in full will not be accepted for review at the next HREC meeting and will be returned to the principal researcher for attention.
Research governance or site specific assessment
There is no deadline for governance applications. Complete and submit your research governance application as early as possible.
Protocol amendments, replies to queries and serious adverse event reports
There is no deadline for these items and can be submitted at any time. Correspondence will be reviewed by the relevant project Spokesperson(s) as soon as possible after it is received. Final approval will be determined at the next scheduled meeting of the Human Research Ethics Committee following review by the Spokesperson(s).
