As part of the initiative to have streamlined and efficient ethics approval, NHMRC is developing the Human Research Ethics Application (HREA) as a replacement for the National Ethics Application Form (NEAF). The aim of the HREA is to be a concise streamlined application to facilitate efficient and effective ethics review for research involving humans. The application will assist researchers to consider the ethical principles of the National Statement on Ethical Conduct in Human Research (2007) in relation to their research, rather than focus on requirements for approval.
The application is being designed to be compatible with existing IT systems used to manage ethics applications and to streamline other processes, such as reporting.
The HREA is being developed with input from representatives from HRECs, public and private hospitals, academic institutions and commonwealth and state government departments. NHMRC have also established a Human Research Ethics Application.
