New TCPS2: CORE-2022 certificate now required to be included with main application submissions to Research Ethics Board

In early 2022, the Research Ethics Board announced that effective Jan. 1, 2023, it will no longer accept pre-2022 TCPS2: CORE Certificates in order to be up-to-date with the latest recommendations from the Panel on Research Ethics.

The newest version of the Tri-Council Policy Statement 2: Course on Research Ethics (TCPS 2: CORE) was officially released at the beginning of last year, and in an effort to offer the research community adequate opportunity to take the new training, the REB set the due date for its completion for the following year of the CORE’s release.
