Title of Project:
Please complete this mandatory Ethics Research Checklist for all proposed research
which uses animals that is conducted as part of your job / studies for Anglia Ruskin
University. This is to ensure you are complying with Anglia Ruskin University Policy.
If you are using human subjects, please use the human research ethics checklist.
This checklist is split into sections. Please complete all sections including the experimental
design and study protocol form (page 3). Completed forms should be returned to the
administrator of your appropriate Departmental Research Ethics Panel (DREP) (or the
module leader in case of Undergraduate research projects). You need to do this to
comply with Anglia Ruskin University’s Ethics Policy. Please note that the DREP may
still decide that the application must be approved by the Faculty Research Ethics Panel
(FREP) or Research Ethics Sub-Committee (RESC).
You will receive a written response as soon as possible.
This checklist should be completed by the Principal Investigator or the student in
consultation with his/her supervisor.
Do NOT commence your research until ethics clearance has been granted.
You will be informed by your FREP administrator / module leader as appropriate.
