SA Good Clinical Practice Guidelines

December 14, 2011


Q: Why guidelines?

A: “The purpose of these guidelines is to provide South Africa with clearly articulated standards of good clinical practice in research that are also relevant to local realities and contexts and to ensure that clinical trials conducted on human participants are designed and conducted according to sound scientific and ethical standards within the framework of good clinical practice. Compliance with these standards provides the public with assurance that the rights, safety and well being of trial participants are protected and that clinical trial data are credible.”
