REB Submissions Requiring Delegated Review (minimal risk):

  • May be submitted at any time.
  • REB review comments are normally provided to the investigator within 14 days of submission.
  • It is recommended investigators avoid the deadline dates noted above when submitting delegated (minimal risk) projects, as reviews may be delayed if received on the deadline date for full board submissions.
  • Please also note, delegated submissions may be delayed during holiday periods or when the REB is experiencing increased volume, for example Summer studentship applications. Get your submissions in early!
