Recent Trends in Noncompliance: Critical Review and Analysis of Recent Regulatory Letters and Communications from the FDA, EMA, and Health Canada November 2017

Course Description

As the clinical research environment evolves in response to both internal and external changes, regulatory agency communication appears to be focused on particular areas of GCP compliance. The FDA’s recent findings for Clinical Investigators, sponsors, and Institutional Review Boards (IRBs) tend to reflect historic areas of noncompliance; however, more attention is being placed on ensuring that corrective and preventative action plans are developed to secure compliance. This web seminar will examine the trends in recent regulatory communication (warning, NIDPOE, NOOH letters and 483s) and open discussion for review of acceptable versus unacceptable responses.
