CAREB-ACCER and N2 (Network of Networks) are pleased to provide a set of collaboratively developed, standardized, Canadian REB SOPs via open access. The most recent version (April 2016), is now available in English and the French version will follow soon.

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.

Comments, questions and other feedback are encouraged and should be directed to the REB SOP Chair by contacting: Alison van Nie at [email protected]

Access issues can be addressed by contacting N2′s coordinating office at [email protected] .
