The National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID) recently launched ClinRegs, a website that enables users to explore clinical research regulations within a country and compare requirements across countries. The ClinRegs website has the potential to be a useful resource for those involved in planning and implementing international clinical trials.
Key topic areas covered on the website include clinical trial lifecycle, competent authority oversight, ethics committee oversight, informed consent, investigational products, specimens, and sponsorship. Regulatory information is summarized in English and organized by country and topic.
ClinRegs currently includes information for Brazil, China, India, Kenya, Liberia, Malawi, Peru, Sierra Leone, South Africa, Tanzania, Thailand, Uganda, the United Kingdom, and the United States. The ClinRegs team plans to further expand its country list in alignment with NIAID research priorities, including Guinea, Mali, Mexico, and Vietnam. To access the ClinRegs site, go to clinregs.niaid.nih.gov.
