COVID-19 Information | RDC’s plan to deliver quality education this fall

How long does a research ethics review take?

Ethics application reviews typically take 15 business days to complete; a review may take longer if modifications or clarifications are requested.  If a Full Board Review is required, it will take longer to conduct the review.

The REB is rarely able to accommodate “rush” or “last minute” reviews.  The majority of REB Reviewers are faculty members; as such, they are subject to the same press on their time as other faculty, which makes some times during the year a bit more difficult to accommodate expedited review requests.
