Before submitting an application to AUTEC, researchers are strongly recommended to have it reviewed by the Research Ethics Advisor or their AUTEC Faculty Representative.
Applications will be received at any time and should be submitted once they are finalised. As nearly half of the applications received are reviewed under delegated authority, it is advantageous to submit applications to AUTEC as soon as they are ready.
Applications and amendments may be submitted by email. A single .pdf file containing the form and all related documents is to be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org. The scanned single .pdf file must have the EA form at the beginning and the other documents in the order stated in the form. The application or amendment must have all the required signatures.Please note that any applications received after 4 pm on the closing date will be placed on the agenda for the following meeting.
