The Clinical Trial Regulation (EU) 536/2014 (CTR), the latest regulatory framework for medical treatment studies, replaced the previous Clinical Trial Directive 2001/20/EC (CTD) on January 31, 2022. Since its adoption, the CTR has impacted the readiness and execution of clinical trials within the European Union (EU) and European Economic Area (EEA) Member States. In this white paper, author Pierre-Frédéric Omnesthe examines the use of “Regulation” as a legislative instrument, standardized application and reporting requirements, the centralized Clinical Trial Information System (CTIS), and heightened transparency obligations.
The paper also delves into the operational considerations for stakeholders and recommends essential areas to address in readiness plans, emphasizing the adoption of quality management systems, safeguarding confidential information, and adhering to transparency and disclosure mandates. Additionally, it underscores the significance of effective CTIS management, user allocation, and strategies for handling commercially sensitive data and personal information.
