Human Ethics Advisory Groups

"Low risk research" is one of the categories of research identified in the National Statement, and is defined as "research in which the only foreseeable risk is one of discomfort."1

At Deakin, Human Ethics Advisory Groups (HEAG) are responsible for the review of all low risk research in accordance with the National Statement. Each of the Faculties has its own HEAG which is comprised of academic staff members.
