​​​​​​​​​​Welcome to the Research Gov​​ernance​ 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.
