Research Ethics Fees and Deadlines

Fees

Fees for ethical review and approval for studies at Vancouver Island Health Authority (and their related annual renewal and amendments) are only charged for 'for-profit' studies, such as sponsored clinical trials.  Fees will be billed upon receipt of the study to the Principal Investigator and must be paid upon receipt of the invoice.  Please contact us if you are unsure if your study is required to pay fees.  

Effective 01 JAN 2015

Ethics Review                           $ 3,000

Annual Renewal                       $   500

Minor Amendment                   $   250 

Major Amendment                   $   500 

Submission Deadlines for CREB Meetings

All applications to be considered by the Clinical REB (CREB) must be received by the deadlines below. Electronic submissions are considered received when they have been acknowledged by the Research Ethics and Compliance Office as complete and ready for review.

Once acknowledged as complete and ready for review, we will make every attempt to ensure your study is added to the agenda for the next meeting.  A maximum if five (5) studies can be reviewed at a CREB meeting.  You will be contacted if your application cannot be reviewed at the next meeting.  Studies will be added to the CREB agenda in the order in which they were acknowledged.  Occasionally, a second meeting may be arranged to accommodate large volume of studies received in a given month.  However, this is based on availability of REB members and cannot be guaranteed.
