Research Ethics and Compliance Support (RECS)
What we do
The Research Ethics & Compliance Support (RECS) team coordinates committees and processes for research involving humans, animals, gene technology and radiation safety and provides advice on legislative and other requirements in these areas. Committees include the Human Research Ethics Committee (HREC) and its Human Research Ethics Advisory Panels (HREAPs), the Animal Care & Ethics Committee (ACEC), the Institutional Biosafety Committee (IBC), and the Radiation Safety Committee (RSC).
Located within the Office of the Pro Vice-Chancellor (Research), the RECS team works closely with researchers, research and facility managers, safety and internal audit personnel and other teams of the Research Divison to ensure that research at UNSW is conducted according to ethical and safe standards and supported effectively. The RECS team also assists researchers working with other institutions and in clinical trial settings outside the university and provides specialist animal care services and training. RECS team members are available to deliver tailored presentations and seminars for UNSW researchers and affiliated institutes and centres.
