REB Standard Operating Procedures
The CHEO REB has adopted the Network of Networks (N2) standard operating procedures (SOPs) for Canadian REBs. The REB SOPs are specific to ethics boards that review health sciences research and are compliant with applicable Canadian and US regulatory, and ethics guidance criteria. SOPs are official, written instructions to be followed routinely for the performance of designated operations or in designated situations. SOPs ensure consistency within the REB. The implementation of the N2 REB SOPs will facilitate the distribution, adoption and maintenance of a single standard for REBs in Canada. Documents that assist the organization to ‘bridge’ information in the SOPs with specific/local procedures are not part of the official SOPs but have been created to meet the needs of the CHEO REB.
