Health Research Ethics Board

The HREB is appointed by the HREA to conduct research ethics reviews in the province. The HREA has registered its HREB with the Office for Human Research Protections (OHRP) for Federal wide Assurance (FWA) purposes. In Newfoundland and Labrador, if your institution or organization has an OHRP – approved FWA, then you must designate the HREB as an affiliated external HREB.

The identification information for the HREB is: IRB00011348 – Health Research Ethics Authority. This registration is listed on the OHRP website.
