What is UK CRC Registration?

Units awarded UKCRC Registration are required to provide evidence to an international panel of experts of their capability to centrally coordinate multi-centre clinical trials (i.e. having overall responsibility for the design, development, recruitment, data management, publicity and analysis of a portfolio of trials), and that they have established robust systems to ensure conduct and delivery of clinical trials to the highest quality standards.
