EU Clinical Trial Regulation: Overview and Implementation (London, United Kingdom - April 23-24, 2020) - ResearchAndMarkets.com

DUBLIN--()--The "EU Clinical Trial Regulation: Overview and Implementation" conference has been added to ResearchAndMarkets.com's offering.

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 new EU Clinical Trial Regulation (536/2014) will replace the European Clinical Trials Directive (2001/20/EC). 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. Once the electronic portal and database are fully functional and the European Commission has given its approval, it will take six months to become applicable. Guidelines for enacting the new Regulation have also been prepared in a number of areas including inspection, investigational medicinal products and trial documentation.

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 programme will highlight the most important of these key requirements and changes and how these are likely to impact on trials for biopharmaceutical companies, CROs and study sites.
