UREB Meetings and Deadlines:


If your ethics proposal requires a Full-Committee Review, please ensure that the proposals are received a MINIMUM of 3 weeks prior to the UREB Meeting.

Researchers must allow sufficient lead time for Research ethics review and approval prior to beginning any research with human participants. No research can begin until research ethics approval is granted. Please factor in time for revisions/clarifications to your application when developing your research timeline. Due to the volume of minimal risk ethics applications that are received and processed, researchers may reasonably expect initial comments from UREB reviewers within 30 days from the receipt of the application. Initial comments will be comprised of requests for revisions/clarifications, additional supporting documentation, or approval for the application for ethics approval as presented. Researchers should make every effort to highlight requested revisions/clarifications in some form (e.g. bold, highlight or track-changes option). By clearly indicating where revisions/clarifications have been made, the reviewers are able to locate these quickly, resulting in a quicker reply. For research ethics applications that exceed minimal risk (full committee review), the UREB must receive your application at least 3 weeks prior to the meeting. Your application will be adjudicated at the meeting and the Chair will then advise of the outcome within ten working days of the meeting (approval as presented, or revisions/clarifications required, or unable to approve as presented.) The rationale will be provided by the Chair.
