Read Frequently Asked Questions

This webinar will help ensure attendees are familiar with new regulations for running clinical trials in Europe. It will help them prepare to implement the new requirements efficiently while elaborating how clinical trials will be authorized in the future. The instructor will also detail the authority proffered to EU regulators to perform inspections of all clinical trials registered in the EU, whether they are conducted within the EU or internationally in other emerging markets.

Why Should You Attend:

Are you up to date with the new European clinical trial regulation requirements?

On 2 April 2014, the European Parliament approved the new European Union Clinical Trials Regulation and on 27 May 2014, the EU Clinical Trials Regulation (No 536/2014) was published in the Official Journal of the EU (OJEU). The new regulation will have a significant impact on how to conduct multinational clinical trials in Europe because it provides for:

  • An authorisation procedure for clinical trials which will allow for a fast and thorough assessment of the application and which will ensure one single assessment outcome
  • Simplified reporting procedures
  • More transparency on whether recruitment for participating in a clinical trial is still ongoing and on the results of the clinical trial

This course will take you through the most important new regulatory requirements for clinical trial regulation in Europe, and also those that have an impact on trials internationally. The course will highlight changes in existing requirements and how these are likely to impact trials for pharmaceutical companies, CROs, vendors and study sites.

Regulatory inspectors will expect those involved in clinical trials to be aware of the new regulation for controlling clinical trials – this essential course will also be ideal for disseminating the information to your staff and colleagues to be prepared for these important changes. With this course, you can eliminate the confusion and ensure compliance with EU requirements for clinical trials.

Areas Covered in the Webinar:

  • Important update on the new Clinical Trial Regulation in the European Union and its international impact
  • Decipher the content of the new proposed Clinical Trial Regulations in Europe
  • How clinical trials will be authorized in the future

  • Ensure you comply with the proposed changes for pharmacovigilance and adverse event reporting
  • Sponsors will report unexpected serious adverse events directly to the European EudraVigilance database
  • What you need to know about regulatory inspections for the new regulatory requirement

Topic Background:

The new Clinical Trials Regulation introduces an overhaul of the existing regulation for clinical trials for medicinal products in the EU. The regulation will be directly binding in all EU member states without the need for any national implementing legislation.

The European Commission is going to entirely replace the Clinical Trial Directive in light of widespread criticism from patients, researchers and industry alike. Of particular concern was the lack of harmonization between countries and the high cost of complying with the directive. “This has contributed to a significant decline of clinical trials in the EU,” wrote the commission. “Between 2007 and 2011 the number of clinical trials conducted in the EU fell by 25%. This new single regulatory proposed framework will allow the pharmaceutical industry to avoid the current ‘patchwork’ of national frameworks.”

The new legislation will immediately affect an enormous amount of clinical research and it will be critically important to understand the new requirements.

The EU health commissioner said the revised rules "will ensure that the EU remains an attractive location for clinical research (2013). However, there are significant concerns remaining about how the legislation will impact on audit and inspection.”

This webinar will help sponsors, CROs and study sites running clinical trials in the EU and internationally understand the important new compliance requirements concerning the new EU Clinical Trials Regulation due to be enacted in 2016 and which will replace the 2001 Clinical Trials Directive (CTD) (2001/20/EC).
