Webinar: Proposed Changes to TCPS 2 for Public Consultation (December 5, 2013)

Public Comments on the Proposed Changes to TCPS 2 (January 2014)

In September 2013, the Panel on Research Ethics released proposed changes to TCPS 2 to the public for comment. In December 2013, the Panel posted an additional set of proposed changes to TCPS 2 Article 3.7.

Written comments were accepted until January 15, 2014 – the majority of which are presented below.  As promised in the invitation, all comments on the proposed changes have been posted unless the contributor specifically indicated otherwise.  Comments are posted in the language in which they were received.

The Panel will prepare a draft based on these comments, and later in 2014, the Panel expects to submit a final revision to CIHR, NSERC and SSHRC for their consideration and decision/approval.
