Applications must be signed by the research team and passed to the relevant Research Ethics Officer to be approved and signed off on behalf of the Faculty / Directorate. The deadline date is the final date for sign off and should not be the first time the REO has seen the application; please allow time for amendments.
Once signed off at Faculty / Directorate level the final version of the application and supporting documents should be submitted on Converis by the deadline date shown below. Applications will only be assigned a meeting slot once received by the Ethics Office. On receipt, the application will be assigned to the appropriate Sub-Committee and added to the next available agenda space.
Note: a maximum of 12 applications will be considered at each meeting. Once the limit has been reached, any further applications will be carried forward to the next meeting.
Applications will be accepted on a first come first served basis. The documentation must be completed and signed off by the Faculty/Department or Directorate Research Ethics Officer. Once the Faculty Research Ethics Officer has signed off, your signed application and all supporting documentation should be submitted by the submission date.
