This UK policy document describes what research ethics committees should be like and when their review is required.
- Governance Arrangements for Research Ethics Committees: a harmonised edition (latest version; updated April 2012)
Working with the Devolved Administrations we are currently agreeing a revision of Governance Arrangements for Research Ethics Committees. The revision is primarily 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 current version was issued in 2012. We are also taking the opportunity to make some clarifications in light of feedback on the current version.
