Researchers have the right to request, and the NUREB has an obligation to provide, reconsideration of decisions affecting a research project, through deliberation, consultation or advice. The researcher and the NUREB must have fully exhausted the reconsideration process, and the NUREB must have issued a final decision before the researcher initiates an appeal.  

Nipissing University has signed a formal Memorandum of Understanding – Ethics Appeal Agreement with a cooperating university.

 The application for appeal should include:

  •  A letter from the Researcher justifying his/her reasons for requesting the appeal;
  • The original ethics application submitted; and
  • Documentation outlining the NUREB’s decision (minutes, REB reviews, etc.).

The Ethics Administrator will be responsible for forwarding the above documentation to the Appeal Committee.

Appeals may be granted only on procedural grounds or when there is a significant disagreement over an interpretation of the Tri-Council Policy Statement 2 (TCPS2) at 500 Internal Server Error
