Clinical Trial Notification Scheme

For for certain 'Type A' trials notification of the trial to the MHRA is possible.

Type A trials are those involving medicinal products licensed in any EU Member State if:

  • they relate to the licensed range of indications, dosage and form; or
  • they involve off-label use (such as in paediatrics and oncology, etc) if this off-label use is established practice and supported by sufficient published evidence and/or guidelines.

See the MHRA websiteLink open in a new window for further information.
