Human Research Ethics Committee of the Northern Territory Department of Health and Menzies School of Health Research
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). 
 
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 on a case by case basis for projects that have prior HREC approval from other regions of Australia, and who are seeking local approval.
 
The HREC receives advice from two sub-committees in the consideration of ethical issues in research involving Indigenous peoples in the NT and in qualitative research.
