  • SINGLE SITE ETHICAL REVIEW: Sponsor or Principal Investigator (or delegate) for Peter Mac site.


  • The Investigator will be sent an Annual Progress Report Form prior to the anniversary month of the ethical approval. For single site ethical review the form will be sent to the Principal Investigator at Peter Mac. For multisite ethical review projects the form for all sites will be sent to the Coordinating Principal Investigator prior to the anniversary month of the ethical approval.
  • Each form must be fully completed and emailed to [email protected] including the Project No. and the term ‘Progress Report’ in the subject line of the email.
  • Failure to submit the report within 30 days of its receipt may result in the suspension of the project by the Ethics Committee.
