Students have been notified (via email) of changes to ethics applications through the NSWIOP Ethics Committee. These committees are usually referred to as Human Research Ethics Committees (HREC). In summary these changes are follows:

  • As of 1 October 2016, the NSWIOP will formally close the NSWIOP Ethics Committee with the National Health and Medical Research Council.
  • From that time, should any of our students require HREC approval that is not under the auspice of a locality or domain HREC, HETI/NSWIOP has negotiated a service contract with a HREC for our students' use.
  • From October 2016, the only obligation for NSWIOP students with HREC approvals for their research is for them to advise us of the details of their HREC approvals.
