International Council for Harmonization (ICH) Requests Public Comment

The International Council for Harmonization (ICH) recently announced that it is requesting public comment on a “Reflection Paper” outlining a proposed approach to revising and modernizing the ICH Guidelines for clinical trial design, planning, management and conduct.  

The planned modernization, which would affect the current E8 General Considerations for Clinical Trials and the E6 Guideline for Good Clinical Practice, addresses the increasing diversity of study types and data sources that are used to support regulatory and health policy decisions. FDA helped draft the Reflection Paper and supports the effort. Stakeholders should submit comments to by March 11, 2017.
