Updating policy

Working with the Devolved Administrations a revision of the Governance Arrangements for Research Ethics Committees was released on 26th March 2020. This revision was a technical update to take account of changes in hyperlinks, references, organisations’ names and branding, as well as legal, policy and operational developments since the previous version was issued in 2012.
