Indemnity and insurance details

Researchers and students completing IRAS applications for NHS ethical approval will need to provide evidence that insurance/indemnity arrangements are in place for their research. GCU will provide insurance/indemnity cover when it is sponsoring the research. Copies of the insurance/indemnity documents must be included with your IRAS application and failure to submit the documents will delay the application process. When submitting the forms make sure they are in date, you have checked the exclusions in the insurance/indemnity (e.g. clinical trials involving person known to be pregnant, clinical trials involving participants under five years of age), and that your research is covered by the insurance/indemnity.

Copies of the indemnity/insurance details of the Sponsor are an essential requirement of the application process. You can obtain these documents by contacting the Contracts and IP Advisor, RIO.
