Instructions for Look-Up Tool

Use the search box below to look up the processing status of the study that you have previously submitted.  Please note that the search must be an exact match to the ethics ID that you have inputted into the original submission.


PRADDA = This status is related to the Data Disclosure Agreeement (DDA).  If a DDA is required, the review process is not initiated until the DDA is received.  If your status indicates that the HSA team is waiting for you to send the signed agreement to us, please complete the template and submit it into Research.Administration@ahs.ca.

PRAStatus = This status is related to where in the processing queue your study is currently.  If we are awaiting ethics, the studies do not enter the review queue until ethics has been received (with the exception of Industry-Sponsored Clinical Trials). 

The processing order is:

  1. Submitted for Review - your request has been submitted for review, document submission may be incomplete
  2. EDGE Record Complete - all the required documentation have been collected from the study team
  3. Triaged - the study has been triaged to an Advisor for review
  4. Advisor Review In-Progress - Advisor is currently reviewing
  5. Advisor Review Completed - Advisor's review is complete and is working with the research team to complete the necessary approval processes.

If you have additional questions, please contact Research.Administration@ahs.ca.
