Approved by another HREC

It is a requirement that the USQ Human Research Ethics Committee (HREC) is informed of all research being conducted by University of Southern Queensland researchers (staff and students). 


If your research project has been approved by another HREC and involves University of Southern Queensland researchers, then a HRE application is required to be submitted in the Research Information Management System (RIMS). Once in the application, ensure you select 'YES' at question 1.1.

The following supporting documents need to be attached to your application;

  • HREC approval letter
  • HRE application 
  • information sheets
  • consent forms
  • data collection tools
  • any further supporting documents
