Welcome to the Research Governance Service (RGS)

RGS supports the research governance framework for all human research conducted within WA Health or accessing WA Health participants, their tissue or data.

The RGS is a centralised IT system for investigators, project members, sponsors, Hospital Administrators/sites, Human Research Ethics Committees & Research Governance Offices to complete, submit, administer, track and report on ethics and governance documentation throughout the lifecycle of a project, including authorisation, monitoring, closure and publications.

All WA Health research project ethics and governance applications must be submitted via RGS.
