EFPIA CDEG position paper on the use of Form FDA 1572 for clinical trials performed outside the USA

The EFPIA Clinical Development Expert Group (CDEG) published the position paper providing recommendations on the use of Form FDA 1572 for non-IND sites.

In 2018/2019 the EFPIA Clinical Development Expert Group (CDEG) conducted a survey amongst its member organizations to evaluate the potential impact of the non-acceptance of Form FDA 1572 ex-US by EU Member States. The outcome of this survey showed that standard practices regarding the use of Form FDA 1572 in the EU (or other countries outside US) is not consistent across companies and there seems to be a need to provide clarity and recommendations when the FDA form is rejected by EU national Health Authorities, which could cause undue delay in starting a clinical trial.
