Reporting and Request Forms 

Please allow at least two weeks for the processing of all requests.



For all amendments, please submit the Amendment Form, along with all requested changes clearly outlined within the BREB, protocol, consent forms, advertising materials, etc.

All revisions must be made using track-changes, and you are required to submit both the track-changes and clean versions of all documents.

For the addition of new staff, please submit the Amendment Form, a signed pledge of confidentiality, and the TCPS 2 certificate (issued within the last five years).


Study Renewals

Studies receive REB approval for one year only and must be renewed every 12 months to ensure continued ethical approval. It is the responsibility of the researcher to ensure the study is renewed in a timely manner. If the study is not renewed, the REB may close the study, and a new application must be submitted if the study is to be continued.

For all renewals, please submit the most recently approved consent form(s) to ensure your renewal will be processed.


Study Closures

Studies may be closed once data collection is complete, and all remaining acknowledgements, amendments, and addendums have been submitted to the REB. It is advised that studies remain open until all data analysis has been completed.

If you are unsure of what your amendment or reporting form requires, please contact the REB Office: REB@bruyere.org.
