What will REGIS change?

  • REGIS will be a one stop shop for researchers. All Ethics and Governance applications will be submitted on REGIS electronically. This includes annual reports, amendments, SSI, SUSAR, protocol deviations, addition of investigators, etc.
  • Signatures will be via electronic confirmation on the system.
  • Most research project communication will be via REGIS.
  • REGIS will prompt researchers to submit Annual Reports.
  • You will be able to link your ORCID profile to REGIS so that you will no longer have to submit your CV.
  • The Associate Investigator signatures are no longer required to sign the SSA. The Principal Investigator, the Head of Department, Head of Supporting Department and Data Provision sign off is still required (if relevant).
