Research Ethics BC (REBC) and the University of British Columbia (UBC) launched the Provincial Research Ethics Platform (PREP) in 2018. This new functionality within the UBC human ethics module in RISe enables multi-jurisdictional review of research ethics applications in a single online system.
BC researchers who are affiliated with the current REBC partner institutions may submit an application for harmonized review.
How to register to access PREP
To access the Provincial Research Ethics Platform (PREP) for harmonized studies, researchers must first create a UBC CWL account. If you have no current or previous affiliations with UBC, create a basic account for RISe. You will not be able to self-register for a RISe account with a basic account, so the following step is to contact the RISe support team at email@example.com. Please provide the RISe support team with the following information in your email and request your researcher number. The researcher number will only be needed the first time you login to RISe.
