HREBA Streamlines and Simplifies Review Fees as of July 1, 2017

Effective July 1st, 2017, the Health Research Ethics Board of Alberta (HREBA) will charge $4000 for the initial full board review of a study and $1000 for the initial delegated review of a study.

This applies only to industry sponsored studies received by any of three HREBA Committees after July 1st, 2017. 

All industry sponsored studies, regardless of their initial approval date, will not be charged any additional fees for changes e.g. modifications, annual renewals, closures after July 1st, 2017.

An invoice will be sent to the Principal Investigator only after the ethics certificate is issued.  The fee will be payable to Alberta Innovates.
