ETHICS RM (ERM) Update 25/03/2022  - Version 1.27

Please note that updating a form will wipe any signatures and these will need to be re-obtained. This is a minor update and is not mandatory. Forms created before 25/03/2022 are still able to be submitted.

HDEC ERM Forms Update:

An 'administrative section' to import details from the main application has been added to post-approval forms. This will fix the issue some applicants have had with the correct study title and/or CI details not appearing on HDEC approval letters.

The administrative section in amendment forms may edited in the event of a change of Coordinating Investigator or study title.
