Interdisciplinary Committee on Ethics in Human Research (ICEHR)



As of April 1, 2017, TCPS2: CORE Certificates of Completion will be required for principal investigators and supervisors (if applicable) at the time of submission, and for all project team members who will collect data and/or otherwise have contact with human participants, prior to the application being approved.


The ICEHR normally receives proposals for research in the social sciences, humanities, sciences and engineering, including some health-related research in these areas, originating at the St. John’s campus.

Such research is usually from researchers in the Faculties of Humanities and Social Sciences, Business Administration, Education, Engineering and Applied Science, Science; the Schools of Human Kinetics and Recreation, Music, Social Work; Institutes and Special Divisions (excluding the Health Research unit and the Centre for Applied Health Research); and the University Library and Counselling Centre.

Other Research Ethics Boards

If your research does not fit into any of these categories, you should look at the websites for the Health Research Ethics Authority (HREA) or the Grenfell Campus Research Ethics Board
