Research Ethics and Governance Fees

A fee structure applies within the SA public health system for the review of research ethics applications and research governance applications (site specific assessments). Not all applications require submission of a fee, and applicants should review the SA Health Fees Schedule (PDF 215KB).

Fees are payable to the Research Office and/or Institution that will be receiving and reviewing the ethics or site specific assessment application. For advice on seeking a reduction or waiver of the specific fee included in the Schedule, please contact the relevant research office.

Further information

Any further enquiries about fees should be directed to the Research Office or Institution you are seeking ethics or governance approval through, using the contact details available. Alternatively you can contact the Department for Health and Wellbeing Office for Research for general advice via
