Please note that the CUREC 1 Research Ethics form for lower-risk ethics review has undergone extensive revision/re-write in collaboration with researchers from within MSD, with the aim of making the form easier to follow and complete.  We have also introduced an online decision tool to be used to determine whether a CUREC 1, CUREC 2 or CUREC 3 form should be completed.  The revised form and decision tool can be located on the MS IDREC ethics page at (

The new form is introduced with immediate effect and must replace any versions you may have stored locally.  Please bear in mind that applications for ethical review using previous versions of the forms cannot be accepted after 31 December 2018.
