Access Request Forms

What is an Access Request?
An access request review, instead of site specific assessment, should be completed for all human research projects that require support from a NSW Public Health Organisation in the form of access to participants, tissue or data but do not involve the conduct of research at that Public Health Organisation.
For example, access request review should be used if the project involves one or more of the following activities at the Public Health Organisation:
  • Participant recruitment through posters, leaflets, handouts and letter of invitation but not recruitment through direct contact with potential participants or enrolment;
  • Distribution of surveys and questionnaires through staff of the Public Health Organisation but not collation and analysis of responses at that Public Health Organisation; and
  • Access to data or tissue held at the Public Health Organisation but not processing or analysis at that Public Health Organisation.
The Research Governance Officer has the discretion to request that the application is submitted for site specific assessment if they consider that the project involves the conduct of research at a site.
