Regulatory Affairs for Clinical Trials

14 - 15 September 2020

Radisson Blu Edwardian Kenilworth, London

Clinical trials are pivotal to the development of new therapeutic products, generating the safety and efficacy data required to gain regulatory approval. They also generate the evidence required to gain reimbursement and market access. Clinical trials are essential but they are also risky - to ensure patient safety they must comply with strict regulations and approval processes. The Clinical Trial Regulation in Europe has created a simpler system to navigate multi-Member state trials in terms of approval and reporting.  
Over 2 days you will examine the history of clinical trial requirements, the new Clinical Trial Regulation and best practices for ensuring a timely clinical trial authorisation. Through case studies and discussion you will explore important frameworks in clinical trial regulations, including: ICH GCP, Ethics Committee Application, Clinical Trials in Children and Adverse Events reporting. 

  • Prepare for the Clinical Trial Regulation due to be implemented this year
  • Gain a comprehensive overview of the regulatory requirements for carrying out clinical trials
  • Develop effective processes for obtaining clinical trials authorisation: Regulatory approval and ethical approval
  • Clarify the requirements for running clinical trials in children
  • Understand the most important legal aspects of clinical trials
