Post Ethics & Governance Approval


This section applies to both high and negligible/low risk approved research. It is the responsibility of the principal investigators to ensure that they comply with the following requirements.

This section includes applications that have received ethical approval as a single site by the NH HREC (NH HREC Site Only) and when a project has been approved by an accredited multi-site HREC (Lead HREC).

The NH HREC only accepts post approval submissions that are on the approved templates found at the Department of Health, Victoria website, except when a Lead HREC has mandated that their local forms are used.

Initial Governance approval

Lead HREC: A copy of all documents submitted to the Lead HREC plus Lead HREC approval letter and any site specific documents (eg: PICF)
