Research Ethics System login

The Research Ethics System is the University's online system that supports the development, review, and clearance of research ethics applications.

Looking for an application from the previous system?

Please review the training guide to locate, amend, or renew existing applications.

Active applications in the previous system were migrated to the new Research Ethics System and mapped to the Principal Investigator (PI)/Faculty Supervisor’s WatIAM account. If student investigators, or other member of the research team, do not see the application when logging in the PI will need to open the application, select amend, and add members to the People section (select “full access” if the new member will be creating amendments).

Log into the system using your WatIAM credentials. If you are not a Waterloo member, please contact to request access. 

Please use current versions of Chrome, Firefox, Safari, and Microsoft Edge when using the system.
