As per our new (draft) terms of reference which state “The New Zealand Ethics Committee provides ethics review for any non-medical, non-tertiary New Zealand researcher. Its paying client base are government and professional researchers who are invoiced $500 upon submission of their application. Community researchers are asked to koha up to $500 per application.” – the following can go on the website.
The New Zealand Ethics Committee is a registered charity entity (CC50073). No researcher is mandated to submit his or her proposal to NZEC: it is a voluntary service.
To ensure the effective running of our services, we will invoice professional and government organisations $500 per application. However, this amount is negotiable. For community and other non-profit organisations, we respectfully request a koha of up to $500 per application.
