IRISS  |  Self-Registration Overview

The Institutional Research Information Services Solution (IRISS) is an online system that gives researchers and their teams an automated workflow when applying for ethics certifications necessary to conduct research with humans, their information and/or samples.

There are two platforms within the IRISS system: the University of Calgary (U of C) platform and the HREBA platform. Each platform has a separate registration process and login location. This page allows you to register for the HREBA platform.

Important Information

If you are already registered with one of the HREBA committees and need access to another committee, please contact us.  Submitting another registration will not give you access to the additional committee.
