HRA: New templates published to streamline commercially sponsored trials set-up

  Created on Friday, 23 Mar 2018. Posted in News Items

The HRA has welcomed two new agreement templates that will make it easier for life-changing medicine and vaccine research and development to take place across different parts of the UK.

The February 2018 Model Clinical Trials Agreement (mCTA) and Clinical Research Organisation Model Clinical Trials Agreement (CRO-mCTA) replace country-specific versions and mark a significant step in streamlining commercially sponsored trial set-up across the UK health service, cutting out unnecessary administration.

The latest templates will be able to be used across the whole of the UK and have been updated to reflect current practice and regulations. The templates, guidance document and information on how to give feedback can be found in the ‘templates and supporting documents’ section of IRAS Help pages.
