REB Meeting Dates & Deadlines

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, some of the usual REB processes described below have been temporarily changed. For the most up to date information on REB operations, please see the REB COVID-19 Information and Updates page.

New full board applications:

  • Accepted in the office for screening: Applications can be submitted for screening at any time. Please submit a single hard copy and an electronic copy of your application for screening. Electronic copies can be sent to, with the subject “PI Last name – New Full Board Submission”. Any copies beyond the single screening copy will not be accepted.
  • Accepted for Board review: Applications that have been screened and determined to be accurate and complete will be accepted for Board review.  They will be given priority scheduling for review at the Board meeting that falls after the next meeting deadline date. The Research Ethics Coordinator that screened your application will let know know which meeting your study has been scheduled to and ask you to provide 5 complete and 10 condensed review packages in advance of the deadline for that meeting.

Please consider submitting your applications well in advance of your planned meeting date, in the event that screening clarifications are requested. If clarification requests are not addressed prior to the deadline for a meeting, your application will not be scheduled for review at that meeting.

New delegated applications: These are accepted on a rolling basis and not subject to a submission deadline.
