The European Forum for Good Clinical Practice (EFGCP) is hosting a workshop on April 13th in Brussels on how to ensure optimal ethical review within the context of new clinical trials regulation.
The context for this event is the adopation by European legislators of revised clinical trials regulation in 2014. The revised legal framework is expected to bring about significant advances and is expected to be fully implemented as soon as the supporting Clinical Trials Portal and Database are fully functional (2H2017).
EFGCP hosted an initial workshop in September 2014 to discuss key implementation aspects with patients, academia, ethics committees, regulators and industry and share some good ideas and best practices to swiftly start the process in each country.This follow-up workshop aims now to showcase the tremendous progress that has been made with the implementation over the past 18 months.
