About Human Research Ethics

The University of Tasmania Human Research Ethics Committee (HREC) (PDF 272.3 KB) operates a state-wide service and reviews all research with or about humans, their data or tissue conducted by Tasmanian institutions, including research conducted at interstate University of Tasmania (UTAS) campuses.

The University of Tasmania HREC operates in accordance with the requirements of the National Statement on Ethical Conduct in Human Research.

The University of Tasmania HREC meets on a weekly basis. There are no deadlines for submissions.

The University of Tasmania HREC reviews applications submitted by UTAS staff and students, as well as researchers external to UTAS on a fee-for-service basis.
