Thursday, 18 February 2021 (9:00 AM - 12:00 PM) Central European Time

On 31 January 2022, the new Regulation EU No 536/2014 of the European Parliament and of the council on clinical trials on medicinal products for human use, will likely come into force and change the procedure for assessment and approval of multinational clinical trial authorization applications. As a result, a single authorization procedure for clinical trials will be introduced that will be performed electronically via a new EU portal.

The regulation will ensure that, no matter where a clinical trial is being performed, the fundamental rules for the protection of subjects are applied. It therefore includes rules for clinical trials which are conducted outside the EU but referred to in a clinical trial application within the EU. For such trials, the rules call for compliance with regulatory requirements at least equivalent to those in the EU clinical trials regulation, including rules on transparency.

During this in-person workshop, Adriaan Fruijtier, of CATS Consultants will discuss important changes regarding the protection of subjects and provide a detailed overview of the new procedure. Additionally, he will explain how the new regulation will affect the way the conduct of a clinical trial is managed after approval has been granted. New provisions for public access to an EU clinical trials database will enforce disclosure of clinical trials data and information.
