This workshop will focus on Global Clinical Trials in Good Clinical Practice, Bioequivalence, and Pharmacovigilance in the post pandemic world. Presentations and panel discussions will provide information on the recent updates made to ICH E6(r3) and regulatory perspectives on implementation of proportionate and risk-based approaches to the design and conduct of the trial to help ensure that the quality of the trial data generated is of sufficient quality to support good decision making. Panelists will discuss continuing developments in novel operational approaches, data sources, and technologies used in clinicals trials, as well as novel approaches to regulatory inspections.

The event will also include sessions dedicated to the conduct of bioequivalence (BE) studies. Regulators will provide their perspectives on common issues and challenges in the conduct of the clinical and bioanalytical components of BE studies and provide important updates on guidance and inspection activities.

Regulators will also discuss insights into key pharmacovigilance (PV) compliance topics, and the audience will have the opportunity to hear first-hand from regulators about regulatory updates and ongoing collaborative efforts among the international regulatory agencies by conducting and observing inspections, sharing inspection information, and developing policy.
