Revised second draft TCPS released for final public comment

Published on January 12 2010


In December 2008, the Interagency Advisory Panel on Research Ethics released a substantial revision to the Tri-Council Policy Statement: Ethical Conduct for Research Involving Humans (TCPS) for public consultation. The consultation period closed on June 30, 2009. Based on the comments received, the Panel has released a revised version of the draft to the public for further comment.

Written comments on the revised draft 2nd edition of the TCPS will be accepted until March 1, 2010. The Panel will then prepare a final draft which will be submitted to CIHR, NSERC and SSHRC in April 2010 for their consideration.

To obtain a revised copy of the document or to find out how to submit your comments, please visit the PRE’s consultation page.
