The Central University Research Ethics Committee (CUREC) have approved extensive revisions* to:
- Approved Procedure 25 – “Non-invasive research involving participants aged 3 to 16 years, recruited via an organisation”. Researchers who currently follow, or plan to cite this Approved Procedure for their ethically approved research should read and familiarise themselves with the current version (v6.0) and ensure that they can continue to follow this revised procedure for their research.
- Best Practice Guidance 04 – “Research Involving Competent Youths” has also been revised to reflect changes made to Approved Procedure 25.
*Section 1 (scope) re-written to clarify what is/is not allowed under this procedure.
Removed information about Competent Youths – instead directing readers to BPG04.
Section 3 (recruitment) updated for clarity.
