Cancer Committee  |  Managing a Study – Guidance Documents

HREBA has adopted the second version of the Standard Operating Procedures (SOPs) developed by the Network of Networks (N2) and the Canadian Association of Research Ethics Boards (CAREB).

These SOPs are specific to ethics boards that review human health sciences research.  They are compliant with the applicable Canadian and US regulatory and ethics guidance criteria.  These documents were created to bridge the information in the SOPs with HREBA’s local procedures.

In order to help you with the SOPs, there are guidance documents which can assist you.  These are available under “PAGES” on the left-hand side, and are also linked below. Please contact us at, if you have additional questions.

All of the HREBA’s Standard Operating Procedures can be found here.
