ROMEO Access

The NSHA REB has an electronic submission process, accessed through the ROMEO Electronic Porta

User Guides for Researchers and Research Coordinators on how to use to the electronic portal:


If you are a new researcher, you must click on the Register button to create your account. Your username should be your primary email address. Once you have registered, you will receive an email with instructions on setting up your password.  If you have previously submitted a study to either the IWK or the former CDHA/Multisite REBs, you will already have an account within the system.

If you are the principal investigator of a non-interventional study and you do not have a NSHA affiliation, you must have a Supervising Investigator who is affiliated with the NSHA and who will accept the overall clinical and supervisory responsibility during the conduct of the study.

If the study is a clinical trial, the principal investigator must be affiliated with the NSHA.
Please refer to policy Research Ethics Board Jurisdiction RS 02-001.

Note: If you require access to custodial databases, please refer to procedures for obtaining access to HDNS data. For access to data held by the Nova Scotia Department of Health and Wellness, complete the application form.
