Important REGIS dates

REGIS (Research Ethics and Governance Information System) is a new online portal that is being introduced by the Office of Health and Medical Research (OHMR) to manage ethics and site governance of health and medical research projects in NSW and ACT public health organisations (PHOs). REGIS will replace the Online Forms website and AURED and you will use it to create and store your all ethics and site-governance applications. REGIS will also be used for progress reports, safety notifications and amendments.

Important REGIS updates (27 June 2018):

  • Soft-Rollout of REGIS is well underway at St Vincent’s Hospital
  • The soft rollout phase will continue over the next months while the REGIS System is optimised by OHMR.
  • From Wednesday 11 July ALL HREC Applications which are submitted as Low/Negligible Risk to the St Vincent’s Hospital HREC to be conducted only at the St Vincent’s Hospital site MUST BE SUBMITTED IN REGIS FORMAT - THERE WILL BE NO EXCEPTIONS.
  • Online forms will continue to be available for all other studies.
  • REGIS is expected to be fully implemented by the end of Q2 2019.
