Before you Apply

RISe is UBC's secure, online document management system used by all UBC-affiliated REBs. All submissions and department approvals of ethics applications to any of the UBC-affiliated REBs must use RISe. All amendments, renewals, and requests for acknowledgment to previously approved applications must also use RISe.

If you are a first-time user, please register with RISe to create an account. 

2. Complete the TCPS2 2014 Tutorial (CORE)

The requirements are available here and apply to all members of the research team, including faculty, students, residents and research staff.
