The British health authorities unveiled new measures to improve the approval and execution of clinical research inside the country.

An evaluation indicated that between 2017 and 2021, the number of clinical trials launched in the UK dropped by 41%. This poses a “clear and severe threat” to its reputation as a destination for clinical research.

This modification of the clinical trials statute will help to streamline approvals by removing granular and redundant regulatory requirements. This is according to Marc Bailey, Chief Science and Innovation Officer of the Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency

The regulatory authority has stipulated that a review of an application must be completed within 30 days. A maximum of 10 days is allotted for the issuance of a judgment.

The measures, which the MHRA described as the “largest overhaul in two decades,” include making it a legal requirement to register the trial in a public register maintained by the World Health Organization and mandating the publication of a summary of the trial’s results within 12 months of the trial’s conclusion.
