Research Ethics Compliance Review

The UCD Research Ethics Approval System has now been updated to include a Research Ethics Compliance Review in association with UCD Internal Audit.

The overall aim is to provide support for researchers to ensure compliance with the approval given by the reviewing committee as would be in accordance with international best practice.

The Research Ethics Compliance Review Pilot
The Research Ethics Compliance Review was piloted in September 2011. This involved the random selection of approved applications from a number of different schools. The Internal Control Questionnaires (ICQ) below were used for the pilot.  The HREC applications reviewed were drawn from protocols that were approved between September 2009 - August 2010. The AREC applications reviewed were drawn from protocols that were approved from September 2010 - August 2011.
