Guidance documents accessible from this page represent the Agency's current thinking on good clinical practice (GCP) and the conduct of clinical trials. As with all guidance documents, they do not create or confer any rights for or on any person and do not operate to bind FDA or the public. An alternative approach may be used if such approach satisfies the requirements of the applicable statute and regulations. However, in many places throughout these documents, specific regulations are cited and the requirements of the regulations are reiterated. The regulations are enforceable.
Notices accessible from this page are those that have been published by the Agency that contain important information about good clinical practices and the conduct of clinical trials.
