Barwon Health Ethics & Governance Fees

RDU fees have been set based on a percentage of the total (human and other) resources required to review a new research project upon submission and then to monitor and manage it over its lifetime.

The fees charged represent only partial recovery of the total cost of providing ethical and governance oversight.

Barwon Health raises invoices for all RDU review fees. Please complete the following steps;

  1. Download a RDU Invoice Request Form (click here to download - updated July 2024)
  2. Enter as much information as possible into the “blue” coloured areas.
  3. Upload completed form to ERM as a Microsoft Word document with your submission.

Research not covered in the below payment types is exempt from any review fees.

All queries regarding this process should be directed via email to [email protected]

Please note: Fees are cumulative.
