Research governance ensures that research meets the standards of quality, safety, privacy, risk management, financial management and ethical acceptability. it provides a framework for health districts, facilities, managers and researchers to share accountability for research conduct.

All research projects involving humans must be authorised by the SESLHD Chief Executive before starting. To obtain authorisation, researchers need to submit a Site Specific Assessment (SSA) to the Research Governance Office.

Important REGIS Information

All new applications for research carried out in NSW public health organisations must be submitted using REGIS. If you have an existing application in Online Forms please contact the Research Support Office for advice.

If your Ethics application is being reviewed by an ACT or NSW Health HREC and the application was submitted through Online Forms, you must ensure any related site governance application is generated via Online Forms and submitted to the relevant Research Office prior to 1 April 2019. If this does not occur, any additional site governance applications will be unable to be generated until the ethics application has been approved and migrated into REGIS.
