Managing your approved project
Once your project is approved then you will be issued with a letter notifying you of your approval. This should be read thoroughly as the Research Ethics Committee may have made additional comments about your application. The letter will contain a list of documents which were reviewed by the Committee, along with version numbers and dates of those documents. The Committee will keep a copy of those approved documents, and you are expected to keep a copy also. These documents should be kept in your study file, which should be readily available for audit purposes. You will be given a two week notice period if your project is to be audited.
