Expedited review of an application

If you believe there are circumstances that make it inappropriate for your application to be considered at the next regular Human Ethics Committee meeting, you may request the Chair’s permission for an expedited review.

Requests for an expedited review should be sent to the Secretary of the relevant Human Ethics Committee.

Expedited review will not be given where a project involves invasive procedures; or participants who are in a dependent relationship with the researcher, such as prisoners, or hospital patients, children fifteen (15) years old or younger or those who are not fully capable of giving informed consent for themselves.
