We are currently piloting a joined-up HRA Approval validation which incorporates both assessment and ethical review validation.
Currently however you may still receive separate validation letters for the assessment and ethical review aspects of your approval.
The following information describes the ethical review process - depending on your study, this may form part of your overall HRA Approval or may be a stand-alone process for studies which require ethical review only.
The Proportionate Review Service (PRS) provides an accelerated, proportionate review of research studies which raise no material ethical issues.
Studies are reviewed via email correspondence, teleconference or at a face to face meeting by a sub-committee (comprised of experienced expert and lay members) rather than at a full meeting of a REC.
If you have any queries or wish to discuss the content of your letter, you should contact the REC manager or the named person in your decision letter.
A REC is required to give an ethical opinion on an application within 60 calendar days of the receipt of a valid application.
It is increasingly likely that the REC decision will be communicated to you as part of the overall HRA Approval process.
