UPDATE ON PREVIOUS ANNOUNCEMENT REGARDING THE NEW SITE SUITABILITY DECLARATION/VGO

As of 1st November, the VGO becomes mandatory for drug trials, replacing the current Research Declaration for studies subject to the Medical Research Involving Human Subjects Act (WMO) in the Netherlands.

This means that from 1st November, you’re no longer allowed to submit the old Research Declaration for the assessment of the suitability of participating centres.

Why a new procedure Local Feasibility?

Implementation of the VGO signifies a strong step forward towards a faster and more streamlined process from the initial Research Declaration until the start of the study. By pulling the local feasibility assessment forward, the VGO cuts out the time delay that currently exists between the Ethical Committee’s positive decision and the study’s starting date.
