Summary The role of Human Research Ethics Committee (HREC) administrators in the Australian system of ethical review of human research has received little attention in the literature and no formal acknowledgement in the policy framework that guides our research ethics system. Yet HREC administrators play a role that is central to the successful functioning of this system. This research is the first of its kind in Australia to directly approach HREC administrators for a first-hand account of their role and their views. A survey exploring the work of administrators was completed by 45 administrators from the 58 organisations in Victoria that host a HREC, resulting in a response rate of 77%. In addition, 11 HREC administrators participated in individual interviews to provide more in-depth understanding of issues covered in the survey.
