negligible risk

Any project where the potential risk is no more than inconvenience. Under the National Statement, research may be exempt from ethical review on the grounds of negligible risk ONLY where the research involves the use of existing non-identifiable data. Although exempt from ethical review, you must notify the Ethics Office and keep auditable records of the research, as Deakin remains liable for the project’s compliance with the National Statement.

Deakin University acknowledges the traditional land owners of present campus sites.
