The new Ethics Review Manager (ERM) has been implemented within Victoria.
Researchers are now required to submit all New Research Applications and Post Approval Applications via the ERM website - excluding Audit and Quality Improvement Applications and Clinical Database and Database Application Submissions.
Please refer to relevant sections on the website for details on additional requirements and documentation to support your applications (including relevant Departmental sign-off, if required).
Please refer to the ERM User Guides (see below) developed by the Austin Health Office for Research to assist in the transition to the new ERM system.
For assistance with ERM, please direct any enquiries to Helpdesk@infonetica.net
We thank you for your patience during this transition phase.
