Changes to ethics review process for external ethics approval

16 August 2013

From mid-August, projects that have received approval from an external ethics committee registered with the NHMRC will not require additional approval from the University's ethics committee.

Projects will still require approval from the University's ethics committee if they have been reviewed by:

  • an Australian ethics committee not registered with the NHMRC
  • an overseas ethics committee where there is a Sydney-administered grant

These changes are fully compliant with the University's obligations under the National Statement on Ethical Conduct in Human Research 2007.
