Guidance for Ethics Champions

When a Supervisor forwards a checklist online, you will receive an automated email which tells  you that a checklist has arrived online to review (OEC Admin System).  As Ethics Champion is it your responsiblity to review the checklist to make sure you are satisfied that the student has clearly identified any potential risk and explained how they’ll deal with that risk.

  • If you think that not all risks have been considered or some of the answers or questions have not been appropriately addressed, you can return the checklist to the student online.  Once the student resubmits, the checklist will go to the Supervisor for review, who will forward it online for final review.
  • If you think the checklist is complete and the supporting documentation (such as participant information and agreement form) are suitable for use, you can approve the checklist online.
