Application status

The PPLS Research Ethics Committee (PPLSREC) attempts to process uncomplicated applications within 2 weeks. Please note, however, that if your project includes ethical risks (e.g., it involves children, vulnerable adults, deception, etc.), ethical approval could take longer.

In any case, if more than 2 weeks (10 working days) has passed and you have yet to receive a response from the PPLSREC, first look in the uploads area of your online application to see if you can find the response there (in case the notification message went into your spam folder).

If there is no response from the PPLSREC in the uploads area, you should contact PPLSREC General Enquiries to enquire about the status of your application.

Please include your application reference number and project title in any correspondence.
