The countdown is on for the European Union (EU) Clinical Trial Regulation (Regulation (EU) No 536/2014) (CTR) with a go-live date of 31 January 2022. The implementation of the CTR will bring about significant changes to the way clinical trials are conducted in the EU. In this article Cromos Pharma considers some of the requirements for sponsors.
The EU CTR will replace the European Clinical Trials Directive (2001/20/EC) and is intended to harmonize the registration, assessment and supervision of clinical trials across all member states via the CTIS. The CTIS, set up and maintained by the EMA, will host the EU Portal and Database for all EU clinical trials.
While the CTR is designed to simplify and harmonize clinical trial regulation in the EU, it will also demand new requirements from sponsors. These include:
Cromos Pharma has in-depth regulatory expertise and experience in supporting pharma and biotech sponsors to navigate regulatory complexities. Our team is ready to help in smoothing the transition to the EU CTR by advising on protocol language and necessary new processes and ensuring compliance with new requirements.
Cromos Pharma is delighted to be taking part in the upcoming DIA Europe conference (15 – 19 March 2021) and BIO-Europe Spring (22-25 March 2021).
