Meetings schedule

Please note:

  • Agenda items must be submitted prior to 12 midday on the date they are due to the Coordinator Research Ethics.
  • Superseded forms will not be reviewed by the committee - always download the required documents from the Ethics website.
  • Incomplete and/or unauthorised applications will be returned to the researcher for completion.
  • Applications received after midday on the 'Due date for agenda items' will be held over to the next meeting, without exception.
  • Please be aware that there is a cap of 26 application submissions for review each HREC meeting, once this cap has been met subsequent applications received will be forwarded to the next scheduled HREC meeting.

Strict mail out times to the committee must be adhered to, to  ensure HRE Committee members have sufficient time to review each application prior to the meeting. This is a compliance requirement of the National Statement

NB: All applications must be signed off prior to submission by either the:

  • Dean
  • Deputy Dean
  • Associate Dean Research (ADR), or
  • School Ethics Coordinator

Submit your applications to the relevant signatory at least one week prior to the 'Agenda items due to Ethics Office' date, to ensure the signatory has sufficient time to thoroughly review the application and supporting documents, prior to submission by the researcher to the Ethics office.

The Peer review check-list (docx 45kb) is a useful tool for the authorising signatory to assist them in a thorough review.

Unauthorised or incomplete applications will not be eligible for review by the Committee and will be returned to the researcher.
