Overview of the New EU Clinical Trial Regulation – date in 2020 to be confirmed


April 20 @ 9:00 am - 5:00 pm CEST


The new EU Clinical Trial Regulation (536/2014) will replace the European Clinical Trials Directive (2001/20/EC). It was originally due to come into effect in 2016, however implementation has been delayed until the new portal and clinical trial database have been completed and audited. Key aims of the new regulation are to harmonise procedures for carrying out clinical trials across the EU and to simplify the clinical trial approval dossier by submitting clinical trial information through a single point of entry.
