Electronic Forms

Enquiries to REC must be submitted using an electronic form:

The forms for a research project must be created and submitted by the Chief Investigator.
The forms for a general research biobank must be created and submitted by the person responsible for the general research biobank. 
The forms are automatically completed with details from previous submissions and from the user profile of the person creating the form. Information in the form is updated from the user profile each time the form is opened by the person who created it. The information in the user profile must be updated before the form is opened for final submission.

The forms are dynamic screen dialogues - submitted answers guide subsequent questions and help texts with guidance can be activated during completion.
It is especially important to note that there is a separate page in the project application form with questions on clinical trials, records data, human biological material and intervention with ionising radiation which is only activated if this option is ticked.

Wholly or partially completed draft forms or submitted forms can be printed and/or stored locally on your own computer.
This is carried out using the print function which is displayed as a printer icon for each form on My User Page. When the form is saved locally it can be sent to others as an email attachment. The form will be in HTML format until the application deadline expires. The format is then changed to PDF.
