HHS/FDA RIN: 0910-AF15 Publication ID: Spring 2006 
Title: Human Subject Protection; Foreign Clinical Studies Not Conducted Under an Investigational New Drug Application  
Abstract: This final rule follows a proposed rule, which proposed to update the standards for the acceptance of foreign clinical studies not conducted under an investigational new drug application (IND) as support for an IND or marketing application for a drug or biological product. We proposed to replace the requirement in 21 CFR 312.120 that non-IND foreign clinical studies be conducted in accordance with ethical principles stated in the Declaration of Helsinki or with the laws and regulations of the country that is the research site, whichever provide greater protection to subjects. We would replace that with a requirement that such studies be conducted in accordance with good clinical practice (GCP), including review and approval by an independent ethics committee. The proposed GCP standard is consistent with the standard of the International Conference on Harmonisation of Technical Requirements for Registration of Pharmaceuticals for Human Use for GCP and is sufficiently flexible to accommodate differences in how countries regulate the conduct of clinical research and obtain the informed consent of patients.
