EU Clinical Trials Regulation and Clinical Trials Information System

Discover an informative webinar to unravel the complexity of the Clinical Trials Information System (CTIS) and explore the regulatory structure in Europe. Most importantly, let’s discuss whether all the latest changes in the regulatory landscape still position Europe as the number one destination for clinical trials.

The implementation of the clinical trial regulation 536/2014 (Regulation (EU) No 536/2014, on January 31, 2022, was aimed at making the European Union (EU) a more attractive destination for pharmaceutical research and development. But is this the current status for EU manufacturers? This regulation focuses on harmonizing processes of clinical trials including submission, application for authorization, evaluation and supervision of clinical trials within the EU and the European Economic Area, thereby increasing transparency towards the public and providing a common database for regulators. Sponsors of clinical trials are now required to submit their trial via the CTIS portal for regulatory oversight of the trial, tools and monitoring of the trial.

However, since the implementation of CTIS, manufacturers have faced new challenges and regulators are overwhelmed with its complexity.

As a clinical research organization (CRO) that is also able to take over the role of a sponsor for clinical trials, GCP-Service has experienced CTIS firsthand. Join this webinar to gain insights into:
– The complexity of CTIS
– Was Europe ready for CTIS?
– Did the implementation of CTIS destroy theclinical trial environment in the EU?
– Does CTIS simplify the submission process?
– Issues and improvements on the CTIS platform
