Submission Dates and Response Times
There is no set closing date for:
- applications eligible for Expedited Review Level 1 (L1) or Expedited Review Level 2 (L2)
- registrations of external HREC approvals
- applications for Variations to approved research.
The applications will be reviewed as and when they are received.
The time taken to review and respond to applications will depend on the number of applications received. However, the aim is to provide a response in the following time frames:
- L1: 7 to 14 days
- L2: 4 to 6 weeks
Full review applications - L3
L3 applications require review by the full Human Research Ethics Committee (HREC).
Applications can be submitted at any time. The HREC aims to provide preliminary feedback (not outcome) within 10 working days of receipt. Applicants are encouraged to respond to feedback before the meeting date.
The projected time for the HREC's decision to be communicated to the applicant is within 10 working days after the day of the meeting.
