Low and neglible risk applications

“Research is ‘low risk’ where the only foreseeable risk is one of discomfort. Where the risk, even if unlikely is more serious than discomfort, the research is not low risk” – National Statement on Ethical Conduct in Human Research (2007) (S2.1.6)

The Queensland Low or Negligible Risk (LNR) application form can be accessed through the ERM Applications system.

Steps to submitting a low to negligible risk application:

Submit the HREA QLD (low risk pathway) and SSA via the ERM Applications system.

Checklist for Low or Negligible Risk Submission
