“Over the past number of years the workload of CREC has increased due to GDPR and the necessity for REC approval for publication.  Staff shortage has added to this problem. In view of safety and risk management, the committee has taken the decision to postpone receipt of all further applications until Friday the 15th of March 2019.  This is to ensure that all present applications are dealt with appropriately and in a timely manner to clear this backlog.” Professor Michael Molloy, Chairman


Completed applications must arrive at the Clinical Research Ethics Committee office before or at the latest 4.30pm on the last day for submission.

Note: Applications that arrive after 4.30pm on the deadline date WILL NOT (under any circumstances) be put forward for review at the next meeting. They will be held over until the next deadline date.
