Choose a person responsible
All research projects must have an appointed person responsible (PR) who has overall responsibility for ensuring the centre and staff comply with the law.
The PR is in charge of overseeing the centre’s activities, ensuring staff have an appropriate level of training to fulfil their roles and that they comply with inspections. They’re also responsible for submitting paperwork, fees and data to us in a timely manner.
Before a PR can be formally appointed, they need to have successfully completed the person responsible entry programme (PREP), a self-assessment tool that ensures they have a good understanding of the relevant legislation they need to comply with. Prepare for PREP and download the assessment form on Clinic Portal, our dedicated website for clinics and research centres.
