Ethics Review Process

This section pertains to all applications undergoing review by the AUP-ERB for the first time.


All researchers/principal investigators (PI) requesting ethical review must turn in the applicable forms listed on the Review Checklist (FM-URC-026)(Available for Download). Applications are accepted on an ongoing basis. Applications for full-board review must be submitted at least seven working days before the scheduled board meeting; otherwise, it will be tabled for the next board meeting. Expedited applications will be reviewed outside the meeting schedule. To avoid delays, it must be ensured that the application packet is complete and all forms are duly signed. Incomplete applications will be returned to the applicant/s.
