Webinar: ICH E6(R3): How to prepare when you’re still struggling to adopt ICH E6(R2)

Recorded Tuesday, May 5, 2020  |  11:00am – 12:00pm EDT


This webinar discussed the benefits of proactive preparation for ICH E6(R3) with an emphasis on collaboration opportunities within innovation alliances, such as technology and capabilities into a diversifying set of options for decentralized and virtual trials.

The Final Concept Paper for ICH E6(R3), dated 17 November 2019, states, “The action proposed is a full rewrite and reorganization of the ICH E6(R2) Guideline….and will include addressing the application of GCP principles to the increasingly diverse trial types and the data sources being employed to support regulatory and healthcare-related decision-making on drugs, and provide flexibility whenever appropriate to facilitate the use of technological innovations in clinical trials.”


Learning Objectives:

  • Gain an early understanding of the potential revisions to ICH E6(R2) as ICH E6(R3) is authored.
  • Understand the possibilities for the use of technology, real-world data, and other variables, as regulators and the industry transition to decentralized, virtual, and other approaches for the conduct of clinical trials.
  • Synergistic opportunities for how the pharma/biotech industry may collaborate with regulators, service providers, healthcare providers, technology companies, and patients to rapidly and effectively capitalize on the new regulations and advance the potential benefits of diverse approaches to clinical trials.
