The Human Research Ethics Committee (HREC) of the Northern Territory (NT) Department of Health and Menzies School of Health Research is registered and operates in accordance with the National Health and Medical Research Council's (NHMRC) National Statement on Ethical Conduct in Human Research (2007). (Reg no. EC00153)

The Aboriginal Ethics Sub Committee provides advice to the HREC on all applications involving Indigenous peoples in the NT (except Tiwi Island studies).

The HREC supports the research activities of the NT Department of Health and Menzies School of Health Research and also considers ethics applications submitted by non-government service providers and other research institutions conducting research across the Top End of the NT.

Although mutual acceptance and reciprocal approval is not automatic, the HREC will review applications for projects that have prior HREC approval from other regions of Australia, and who are seeking local approval, on a case by case basis.

More information may be found on the specific HREC pages.

Meeting dates of the HREC for 2019.
