30/90 Day Safety Report Submission to Research Ethics Boards

Canadian Cancer Trials Group is updating instructions to clarify timelines for safety reports submission to REBs in the web-based safety reports monitoring utility and in the cover letters and emails provided with safety reports.

Effective April 24, 2009, Canadian Cancer Trials Group will commence use of the revised forms and the web-based safety reports monitoring utility will be updated. Protocols and Intergroup Canadian appendices will be revised in due time in conjunction with other changes as they become necessary. Quarterly reminders will continue to be issued for safety reports that have not been submitted to REBs within 30 days from the date of notification.

This change will also be announced at Spring Meeting.

A memo outlining this change in more detail has been posted to the external website at
