The REB has launched a revised application form for research ethics review. Along with minor revisions in wording, the form includes two major changes. First, in anticipation of the forthcoming release of a new Tri-Council policy on research data management, the new form has a ‘Section 25’ where questions on data confidentiality, management, access, etc. have been combined. Second, the revised form incorporates the questions previously contained on the On-line checklist and the separate on-line checklist form will no longer be required.
The new form has been posted on the REB website; however, the REB will accept applications on the older form until January 1, 2020. After January 1st, 2020 the new form will be mandatory.
The REB encourages researchers to use the new form and provide the REB with feedback between now and the end of the Fall 2019 term. Please offer any suggestions, edits and ideas about the new form by emailing email@example.com. The new form will become mandatory for use on January 1, 2020.
