National Research Ethics Committee established for COVID-19 related research
A temporary National Research Ethics Committee (NREC) for COVID-19 to deliver an expedited process for review for all COVID-19-related research studies has been established.
It will review all COVID-19-related studies that fall under the definition of health research as set out in the Health Research Regulations 2018. The ambition of the NREC COVID-19 is to relay decisions back to researchers within 7 days of confirmation of a validated application.
