The drug industry is one of the most heavily regulated in the world. The steady increase in globalization of the industry has motivated efforts to harmonize regulatory requirements - that is, to achieve some international standardization of the regulations. The principal vehicle for this effort is the International Council for Harmonization of Technical Requirements for Pharmaceuticals for Human Use (the ICH). Among the many guidance documents developed by the ICH, its guideline E6 on Good Clinical Practice is of major importance to all those involved in clinical research, whether they be drug company staff or healthcare professionals. Good Clinical Practice (GCP) is a set of internationally recognized ethical and scientific quality requirements for designing, conducting, recording and reporting clinical trials. Compliance with GCP principles is required by regulatory authorities in many countries for the authorization of clinical trials and the acceptance of their data in applications for marketing approval. The International Council for Harmonization's guideline E6, often referred to as ICH GCP, is the international standard specification for Good Clinical Practice. In this module we describe the ICH's role in the harmonization of regulations, introduce its guideline E6, and set out the principles of GCP.
Certification Requirements: Students must view the entire course and successfully pass an online, multiple-choice final assessment within a 12-month period. A certificate of completion is immediately accessible in PDF format after satisfying the requirements.
Biopharma Institute certificates and digital badges include the date of completion, but do not have an expiration date. However, compliance training is typically considered valid for a period of 3 years. Many organizations suggest that compliance training should be refreshed at least every three years to stay up to date with regulations, standards, guidelines, and to reinforce the importance of maintaining compliance. The validity period for employee compliance training would be determined by those responsible for managing quality assurance.
Biopharma Institute's online training courses include immediate access after enrollment. Username, password, and instructions are emailed to the student directly following online enrollment into the program. Course takers may attempt the final assessment any number of times, as needed, to achieve a passing score. The certificate of completion is instantaneously launched and made available to the student in a PDF format upon completion.
Once all training requirements have been satisfied the achievement can be verified from our website using the unique ID code found on the certificate. Professional certification programs issue a digital badge to verify training and document the achievement. These digital badges can be displayed on social networking sites, such as LinkedIn, Facebook, Twitter, and Badgr.
