What is an EU Legal Representative for Clinical Trials?

According to Article 74 of the CTR, if a sponsor of a Clinical Trial is not based in the EU, then they are required to appoint a representative within the EU to act as a Legal Representative.

The legal representative ensures compliance with the Sponsor’s obligations under EU CTR and notifies the sponsor immediately in the case of becoming aware of incompliance with EU CTR

The Legal Representative is accountable for the sponsor’s compliance with obligations under EU CTR and is the addressee for all communications with the sponsor provided for in the Regulation.

Under the Clinical Trials Regulation, the EU Legal Representative will include the following responsibilities:

  • Help sponsors understand the regulatory requirements;
  • Put together a customized solution to ensure compliance;
  • Stay up-to-date on and communicate EU legal requirements;
  • Assist in coordinating site inspections to comply with the International Conference of Harmonisation (ICH) and Good Clinical Practice (GCP);
  • Prepare clinical trial authorisations and amendment submissions by working with the relevant Ethics Committees and National Competent Authorities.
