Eastern Health Ethics and Governance Fees Change

The Eastern Health Office of Research and Ethics has recently reviewed the Ethics and  Governance Fees charged. As a result of this review a new fee schedule, the first in 4 years,  will commence from 1 April 2018. Not all fees have been increased and in the majority of cases the changes will not impact on Eastern Health investigators who will continue to pay zero fees.
These fees partly assist in maintaining and resourcing the Eastern Heath Human Research Ethics Committees and the Office of Research and Ethics to allow sound ethical review. The fees are comparable to  those charged by other institutions.
The new fees/Fee Notification Form will be accessible online from 1st April 2018.

In the meantime upcoming changed fee structure is available on request.
