Topic Background:

The European Clinical Trials Directive 2001/20/EC was introduced to establish standardization of research activity in clinical trials throughout the European Community. The Directive was transposed into laws throughout the EU from 1st May 2004 and is going through possible major changes currently.

Clinical trials performed in the European Union are required to be conducted in accordance with the Clinical Trials Directive. Also, if the clinical trials are conducted outside the EU, but submitted in an application for marketing authorization in the EU, they should have to follow the principles which are equivalent to the provisions of the Clinical Trials Directive (cf. Annex I, point 8 of the " Directive 2001/83/EC of the European Parliament and of the Council of 6 November 2001 on the Community code relating to medicinal products for human use" - " the Community Code for medicinal products ").
