Governance Arrangements for Faculty/School Based RECs

The University’s Research Ethics Committee through its Terms of Reference is responsible for the provision of “oversight, guidance and support for the establishment and conduct of School/Faculty based research ethics committees established to provide advice on the ethical implications of research proposals which may lead to undergraduate or taught masters’ qualifications.”

The main University REC has established and approved a mechanism by which it can provide a supplementary review of decisions taken at local REC level as a means of quality assurance. Further details can be found in the following document:
