In case you missed it, our colleagues at UBC have announced a planned system outage of RISe, which hosts the Provincial Research Ethics Platform (PREP), from October 28th at 6pm and ending on November 3rd at 7am. UBC is nearing the end of a massive integrative project that will require RISe to be taken down to accommodate for this systems integration.
During the outage time, there will be no user access and no ethics applications will be accessible on PREP. For more information on the UBC Integrative Renewal Project please review the UBC announcement page or please visit, https://irp.ubc.ca/resources/preparing. Should researchers have concerns about their ethics application (e.g. deadlines), please contact the appropriate ethics board as soon as possible to avoid delays.
