Clinical trials: New online form for CTN scheme

The TGA has introduced a new online form for the clinical trial notification (CTN) scheme. This process will be used when a clinical trial investigates the use of a product in Australia which is not on the Australian Register of Therapeutic Goods (ARTG) or on the ARTG, but being used outside the conditions of its marketing approval. Paper based forms received after the 1st of July will need to be submitted online as there are different fields collected for the new online form.

NHMRC Clinical Trials Initiatives
The NHMRC is leading the way in developing nationally consistent approaches to research governance that includes a pilot study at 16 sites across Australia to assess the streamlining of the site assessment and authorisation phases of clinical trial research governance and subsequent reduction of start-up times as well as the development of list of standard items with the Independent Hospital Pricing Authority (IHPA) to further increase the transparency for costing of clinical trials.
