Ethics Application Screening Tool
Any questions? Contact

Welcome to the ‘Newfoundland and Labrador Ethics Application Screening Tool’ – an interactive tool to help guide researchers to the appropriate application for ethics review for the various REBs in the province.

By responding to ‘Yes/No’ questions, you will determine whether or not your research requires REB review and will be navigated to the relevant application form for your study. It is highly recommended that all researchers complete the ‘Ethics Application Screening Tool’ prior to accessing an application form in the Researcher Portal, as applications cannot be transferred between the different REBs if the incorrect application is selected.  In addition, through the creation of the Researcher Portal, the various REBs have updated their processes and forms and these changes may impact which application to complete.
