 The first meeting of the 2023 Year!

February 16, 2023

The EU Clinical Trials Regulation implementation

Kirsten Messmer, PhD, RAC

The Clinical Trial Regulation came into application in Europe on January 31, 2022. More importantly since January 31, 2023, ALL NEW clinical trials need to be submitted through the new Clinical Trials Information System.

This regulation harmonizes clinical trial applications throughout Europe and aims to create a favorable research environment for medicinal product development. The Clinical Trial Directive which is still applicable for already ongoing trials until January 2025, created a patchwork of national clinical trial requirements. Although national requirements still apply, the Clinical Trial Regulation simplifies the application process by providing a one-stop E.U. portal, the Clinical Trial Information System (CTIS), for clinical trial submissions and management. This allows for a single clinical trial application submission to all targeted E.U. and E.A.A. countries.

The presentation will discuss the clinical trial landscape in Europe. We’ll also address some questions around the implementation and update such as: How has the Clinical Trial Regulation application and CTIS use worked out over the last year? Did the system work as advertised and tested? Were there glitches in the use of the system? What impact did the new implementation deadline have?
