UK Agency Ties Trial Registration to Favorable Ethical Opinion

October 18, 2013

The move is in line with a wider European push for greater transparency. The HRA, which is part of the National Health Service, is responsible for ensuring that clinical trials conducted in the UK meet ethical standards.
