How do I submit amendments, request for acknowledgements, annual renewals, etc?

All post approval activities such as amendments, request for acknowledgements, annual renewals, reports of Serious Adverse Events (SAEs) and completion of study notifications must be submitted for UBC C&W REB review electronically through RISe.
