NMA Guidelines for Low and Negligible Risk (LNR) Research Review Processes or Exemption from Ethical Review

This Guideline represents an interpretation of the National Statement on Ethical Conduct in Human Research (the “National Statement”) as it applies to low and negligible risk research. It is intended to provide greater consistency amongst HRECs and others in interpreting and clarifying some of the concepts contained in the National Statement. It should not be used as a substitute for reading and applying those concepts as directly expressed in the National Statement and other related documents.
