Site Specific Assessments for Monash Health HREC Approved Studies

Application guidance for site specific assessments for Monash Health HREC approved studies

These application instructions refer to studies which have been or will be reviewed by the Monash Health HREC and it is intended that the study will be conducted at Monash Health.

The application for Site-Specific Assessment may be submitted at the same time as the HREC application or following submission to the HREC.  The application for authorisation is reviewed outside of the usual HREC meeting schedule and may be submitted by 5pm each Wednesday.  However, it is suggested that both applications be submitted simultaneously, to allow concurrent review.
