The new EU Clinical Trial Regulation (536/2014) will replace the European Clinical Trials Directive (2001/20/EC). The new regulation was originally due to come into effect in 2016, however implementation has been delayed until the new portal and clinical trial database have been completed and audited. Key aims of the new regulation are to harmonise procedures for carrying out clinical trials across the EU and to simplify the clinical trial approval dossier by submission through a new clinical trial database and portal. Guidelines for enacting the new regulation are also being prepared in a number of areas including inspection, investigational medicinal product and trial documentation etc.
This course will provide an essential understanding to help with compliance with the new regulation and associated implementing acts and other texts for carrying out clinical trials in the EU.The course will highlight the most important of these key requirements and changes and how these are likely to impact on trials now and in the future for biopharmaceutical companies, CROs and study sites.
This course is ideal for anyone requiring an update on the new Clinical Trial Regulation. The course is relevant for those working in regulatory, clinical research, clinical operations, project management, pharmacovigilance, quality assurance (GCP auditors), vendor/CRO professionals, study sites and other professionals in pharmaceutical and biotechnology organisations conducting trials with drugs, biologics or combination products.
It will also be of interest to those departments who liaise/support clinical trial personnel, and all other professionals who want to know more about this important new Regulation.
