Clinical Trial Agreements

External partners or sponsors?

Within your planning phase, the required agreements when conducting a study with external partners should be considered early in your project timeline. Only when all relevant documents and all relevant approvals have been collated (such as contingency worker status, data custodian approval etc), it is ready to be submitted within the SSA through REGIS. All signatures should be collected on agreements before submission and the Director of Research will be the last to sign the contract.
