Welcome to the website of the Health and Disability Ethics Committees (HDECs)

The HDECs are currently receiving a high volume of submissions. Not all submitted before the agenda-close date may be accommodated on the agenda for that given meeting. The Secretariat will inform you via Ethics RM correspondence if your submission will need to go on the next available one.


Ethics Review Manager (ETHICS RM)

Our new system for submissions to the HDEC, the Ethics Review Manager (ETHICS RM), has replaced Online Forms. ETHICS RM is accessible at: https://nz.forms.ethicalreviewmanager.com/(external link)

An ETHICS RM user manual is available.

Two ETHICS RM training videos are also available.

  1. In the first part of this introduction to ETHICS RM, we provide step-by-step guidance on account creation and login, creating, submitting, recalling applications and the main work area screen: https://youtu.be/0QdYTCioDUo(external link) 
  2. In the second part of this introduction to ETHICS RM, we provide step-by-step guidance on sharing, transferring form to colleagues and system 'roles', creating post-approval items and existing applications from Online Forms: https://youtu.be/SxxOQVz0HMk(external link)
