Ethics RM for REBs/Ethics Committees

Ethics Review Manager - system for REBs/Ethics Committees


Our powerful, web-based Research Ethics Board system automates all stages of the protocol application process – from creating and submitting protocols right through to the review, approval and audit.

The system is flexible enough to handle all online protocol submissions whatever the type of review, and is complete enough to work off-the-shelf, ensuring you are up and running fast!

The system is fully scalable too – it is used for state-wide systems as well as small- and medium-sized Research Ethics Boards.
