Standard Operating Procedures
HREBA has adopted the Standard Operating Procedures (SOPs) developed by the Network of Networks (N2) and the Canadian Association of Research Ethics Boards (CAREB). These SOPS are compliant with applicable Canadian and US regulatory and ethics guidance criteria. They facilitate the distribution, adoption and maintenance of a single set of standards for REBs in Canada.
Use of SOPs also ensures that the ethics board is constituted appropriately and protects the rights and safety of study participants.
