The research team of a clinical trial must have attended Good Clinical Practice (GCP) training, according to Medicines for Human Use (Clinical Trial) regulations, the UK Policy Framework for Health and Social Care Research and International Conference on Harmonization – Good Clinical Practice (ICH-GCP) guidance.

GCP training must be updated at least every three years while being actively involved in research, unless the study is commercially sponsored, in which case training must be updated every two years.
