GCP-CERTIFICATES AND OTHER TRAININGS
According to the Pharmaceutical Products Act (12th amendment of the PPA), principal investigators must submit their GCP certificates to the ethics commission already at the beginning of a clinical study. Since the order of the German Medical Association in April 2013, principal investigators in all studies must prove to have completed a GCP training according to the PPA and MPA.
We carry out GCP courses which are individually tailored to your study (PPA or MPA). This can be carried out in a joint event of all principal investigators in a study – for example also in the course of an investigator meeting. Alternatively, the GCP training can also be carried out as in-house training and can be combined with an initiation – thus, the effort for principal investigator and study nurse is manageable and at the same time all GCP guidelines are adhered to.
