The CAREB-ACCER and N2 organizations are pleased to announce the release of the second version of the English language version of the Canadian REB SOPs – the French language documents to follow.
The REB SOPs are specific to ethics boards that review health sciences research and are compliant with applicable Canadian and US regulatory, and ethics guidance criteria. The implementation of the REB SOPs will facilitate the distribution, adoption and maintenance of a single standard for REBs in Canada.
Please note that changes to the formal set of REB SOPs may result in the SOPs no longer being compliant and it is for this reason that the SOPs appear as print only PDF documents.
Documents that assist the organization to ‘bridge’ information in the SOPs with specific/local procedures (tools, checklists, sample forms, local guidance documents, contact information) are not part of the official SOPs but can be created or adapted as needed, to meet the needs of the organization.
The V.1 N2 CAREB REB SOPs will be moved to the Archive V.1 N2 CAREB REB SOP folder so they remain accessible.
NOTE: Comments, questions and other feedback should be directed to the REB SOP Committee Chair, Alison van Nie at [email protected]
