13 - 14 February 2020, Novotel London West

Good Clinical Practice Symposium (Commercial) 2020

About

This Symposium is in partnership with the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA).

Regulatory agencies conduct Good Clinical Practice (GCP) inspections to assure the integrity of data generated in clinical trials and to confirm the protection of human research subjects, in addition to ensuring that clinical trials are conducted according to the applicable regulations.  With the globalisation of clinical trials, regulators have increased collaboration amongst themselves to evaluate the adequacy of clinical trial conduct to optimise regulatory resources and oversight.

This event continues the discussion from the United Kingdom’s Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency (MHRA) and the US Food and Drug Administration’s (FDA), Center for Drug Evaluation and Research (CDER) October 2018 GCP Symposium: Data Integrity in Global Clinical Trials - Are We There Yet? This event will provide regulatory perspectives on the importance of sponsor oversight of clinical sites and laboratories, eSource including electronic health records, protocol deviations including the impact on clinical trials, and the challenges in ensuring data quality in novel clinical trial designs. On day two workshop participants will have opportunities to work on relevant case studies on these topics.

At this symposium, participants will learn:

  • Key aspects regarding sponsor oversight of clinical investigator sites and laboratories
  • Impact of eSource on clinical data
  • Investigator control of their data
  • Impact of data quality on decision making
  • How handling of protocol deviations impact data reliability and subject safety
  • The challenges faced in ensuring data quality in novel clinical trial design

 

New for 2020, this year's symposium will reach a global audience with the introduction of livestreaming. This new interactive element will provide those unable to attend in person a unique opportunity to gain access to key presentations from the MHRA and FDA.

Please note livestreaming is only available on day one (Thursday 13 February 2020).


MHRA Good Practice Symposia Week

The joint MHRA and FDA GCP Symposium is part of a week-long series of events led by the MHRA Inspectorate. Interested in attending more than one symposium? Details of discounted combined tickets are listed in the registration section via the Register link above.

 

Good Pharmacovigilance Practice (GPvP)

The 2020 GPvP Symposium will provide an insight into the key topics and compliance trends in pharmacovigilance observed by the MHRA GPvP inspectors since the 2018 Symposium. The event is relevant to anyone working in pharmacovigilance, medical information and regulatory affairs, including EU QPPVs and service providers.

MHRA Laboratories Symposium (Labs)

The 2020 MHRA Laboratories Symposium will highlight the importance of 'fit for intended use' in the context of regulated work across GLP, GCP and GMPQC Laboratories. The content of the event is intended to illustrate that this topic is not just limited to facilities and equipment but can be applied across an organisation, from people and training to quality management systems and report production.
