The Clinical Trials Information System is a harmonised and simplified end-to-end single entry point for clinical trials information in the European Union and in the European Economic Area and will go live on 31 January 2022.
As a single entry point, it will be used for the submission, management and assessment of information throughout the life cycle of a clinical trial. The exchange of information between sponsors and Member States will be fully electronic.
In a recent EMA training webinar, the EMA advise the following to prepare for the CTIS go live date:
- Read the CTIS Sponsor Handbook
- Read the CTIS Training Modules, particularly Module 19 (CTIS for SMEs and academia)
- Ensure the organisation is registered and correct in SPOR
- Familiarise yourself with the CTIS User Personas
- Register Users in the EMA account management
- Register the first Sponsor Administrator
- Ensure your product is registered in the Article 57 database (XEVMPD)
- Prepare your CTA and supporting documents in accordance with CTR requirements
- Sign up to the CTIS Highlights Newsletter (write to firstname.lastname@example.org )
EMA has launched the CTIS training webpage containing a substantial amount of training materials and information for the users and organisations to facilitate their preparedness.
