Sponsored by the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID), ClinRegs provides an online database of country-specific regulations on Competent Authority Oversight, Ethics Committee Oversight, Clinical Trial Lifecycle, Sponsorship, Informed Consent, Investigational Products, Specimens. Currently in BETA mode, ClinRegs is intended to serve as a central resource and time-saver for individuals and organizations involved in planning and implementing international clinical research. The homepage shows a map feature, with clickable information on each country as well as a comparison search tool to view abridged versions of the requirements of two countries side-by-side. The information available on this site is kept up-to-date by regular review and curation by regulatory researchers, with input from the clinical research community. ClinRegs is currently requesting feedback on the site’s content and functionality and will include additional topics to the map feature in response to user feedback.
