Clinical Trials Information System Reaches Major Milestone towards Go-Live and Application of the Clinical Trial Regulation

On 21 April 2021 the EMA announced that the CTIS is on track to go live with the application of Clinical Trial Regulation.

EMA’s Management Board confirmed that the clinical trial EU Portal and Database, one of the main deliverables of the Clinical Trial Regulation and the key component of the Clinical Trial Information System (CTIS), is now fully functional and on track to go live by 31 January 2022. The Board confirmed that it has verified that the system meets the agreed requirements during an extraordinary meeting held on 21 April following an independent audit of this new IT system.

As a next step, the Board will inform the European Commission of this outcome. Once satisfied that the conditions set by the Clinical Trial Regulation have been met, the European Commission will publish a notice in the Official Journal of the European Union and six months after this publication, the Clinical Trial Regulation will start to apply and CTIS will go live. It is the desire of the Board, EMA and European Commission that the system goes live on 31 January 2022, which would imply that the Commission notice in the Official Journal would be published on 31 July 2021.
