Low risk applications may be reviewed by a sub-committee of the HREC or executively approved by the HREC Convener and can be submitted to the HREC Secretariat at any time. The original signed application plus three copies are to be sent to the HREC Secretariat with one pdf version of the application and all attachments emailed to HREC@adelaide.edu.au. The outcome of the application will normally be advised 3-4 weeks after receipt.
Research timetables should allow for the possibility that a project submitted as a low risk application may be deemed to involve more than low risk, or to raise other issues, therefore requiring full review. Researchers may be requested to provide additional information.
The HREC will meet seven times during 2013 to consider full review applications. Please note that submission and meeting dates may need to be changed during the course of the year and so applicants should check the relevant dates regularly.
Applications must be signed by all investigators named in the protocol. The original signed application plus ten copies must reach the HREC Secretariat by 5pm on the deadline date at the address below if they are to be included on the Agenda for the subsequent HREC meeting. Applications received after these deadlines will be held until the next round.
