Amendments to Approved Applications
It is a condition of approval that researchers report anything which might warrant review of ethical approval including proposed changes to the application.
Prior to proceeding with any changes, researchers must apply to the HREC for approval to amend the approved application. To request an amendment, researchers should submit their original ethics application with the amendments requested indicated with colour highlighting or track changes. If changes are being requested to other project documents e.g. the participant information sheet, include this with the amended application.
A justification for the proposed amendments should also be included. Researchers should also ensure any Annual Reports on Project Status have been submitted according to the HREC's reporting requirements.
Amendment requests are to be sent to the HREC Secretariat at firstname.lastname@example.org
