Accelerating Clinical Trials in the EU

Clinical trials safety


The Clinical Trial Regulation and Implementing regulation which came into force on 31 January 2022 introduced the concept of safety cooperation and work-sharing among Member States.

Joint Action (JA) 12 of the EU4Health Safety Assessment Cooperation and Facilitated Conduct of Clinical Trials (SAFE CT) supports these new concepts through provision of additional resources and expertise necessary to implement the new regulation.

The goal of this JA is to establish and maintain cooperation in safety data assessment in clinical trials via building capacities and performing training activities in the participating Member States. The experience gained during the JA will be used to update and improve the procedures on cooperation and training in safety surveillance in clinical trials.
