The Committee for Harmonized Health Impact, Privacy and Ethics Review (CHIPER) is an independent, multidisciplinary committee consisting of health professionals, members of the scientific community, and experts in ethics, privacy and access to data.

CHIPER’s mandate is to provide robust reviews of health research ethics as outlined in the Tri-Council Policy Statement: Ethical Conduct for Research Invovling Humans (TCPS2) and privacy in compliance with PHIA, and to streamline the process for operational impact reviews. CHIPER will conduct reviews of research protocols to ensure that researchers adhere to ethical principles with respect to the conduct of research and the access, collection, and storage of personal health information.
