New application for research that is greater than low risk

The Eye and Ear HREC can review and approve the following projects involving greater than low risk:

  • Projects conducted by Eye and Ear staff at the Eye and Ear Hospital
  • Projects conducted by a research partner organisation at the Eye and Ear as a single site
  • Projects involving private sites that do not have their own HREC​​​​​​

If the project is multi-site at more than 1 public hospital, then the project must be submitted to a Reviewing HREC as per the instructions on the Streamlining review pathways website.

If the research project involves an ENT Department, the research team will need to obtain approval from the ENT Research Governance Committee prior to submitting an application to the Eye and Ear HREC. 


For instructions to obtain Research Governance Authorisation go to the Eye and Ear Research Governance Authorisation webpage 

For management of approved projects go to Post Approval Project Management webpage
