When you submit your application(s) for approval(s), you will usually need to provide a number of supporting documents. Information about the supporting documentation needed by a review body is usually provided in IRAS. This information is often also set out on the review body’s website.
We strongly recommend that you check what supporting documentation you are expected to provide well in advance of when you expect to submit your application(s). This will help ensure you that you have prepared all the necessary documentation and that it is ready to be supplied. This will avoid unnecessary delays in the review and approval process.
Some of these supporting documents, for example the protocol and participant information sheets, have been referred to in previous pages. Other documents you may be asked to supply, depending on the type of research and the application(s) being made, could include:
- Completed costing template
- Template contract/ agreement using the relevant model unmodified
- Pharmacy manual (if using NHS facilities)
- Laboratory manual (if using NHS facilities)
- Scientific review
