As of September 1, 2018, Research Ethics BC (REBC), supported by the BC Academic Health Science Network (BC AHSN) and the University of British Columbia (UBC), launched the Provincial Research Ethics Platform (PREP). This new functionality within the UBC human ethics module in RISe will enable multi-jurisdictional review of research ethics applications in a single online system.
To apply for ethics review on PREP, researchers will need to complete a two step process. First, researchers will need to apply for a basic CWL through UBC. Second, you will need to receive a researcher number, which is required the first time you log into PREP. Please see the following step by step instructions for accessing RISe.
Only researchers who are affiliated with the current REBC partner institutions may submit an application for harmonized review.
