The new framework of globally applicable standards for clinical trial data, effective from September 9, 2023.

All companies now need to implement the EMA guideline on computerised systems and electronic data in clinical trials if the data will be used to support a marketing authorization in the European Union (EU). Effective on September 9, 2023, the guideline sets forth consolidated requirements on the use of computerized systems, the collection and use of electronic data and introduces a new framework of standards to be upheld by sponsors, investigators and their service providers globally.

The new guideline impacts sponsors, investigators and service providers involved in running clinical trials. Join this ICON webinar to gain the knowledge required to achieve compliance with the new regulatory regime, with a strong focus on data accuracy, security and operational efficiency of the trial.
