The present ethical review system, Prisma, has not provided the intended support. A new system is being procured and the ambition of the Swedish Ethical Review Authority is that the new system will be up and running in 2020. Until then a transitional solution to handle the ethical reviewing will be used.

The change in procedures coincides with an ongoing reorganization of the Swedish Ethical Review Authority alongside new recruitments. This may temporarily mean longer processing times, but the Swedish Ethical Review Authority does not expect any significant delays.

Important dates
