GCP is a set of rules and regulations that is provided by ICH, an international body that regulates clinical trials involving human subjects. It is a standard for the design, conduct, performance, monitoring, auditing, recording, analyses and reporting of clinical trials that provides assurance that the

  data and reported results are credible and accurate, and
  that the rights, integrity and confidentiality of trial subjects are protected.


Why GCP?

In clinical trials, the protection of the subject is paramount especially when untested therapy issued. There must also be assurance about the conduct of clinical trials in terms of elimination of cheating, fraud or accidental error. Problems of poor study design must be avoided. Adherence to GCP is vital otherwise, subjects participating in the trials may be put at risk or the clinical trial data submitted may be rejected by health authorities and the scientific committee, if found to be unreliable. Also, the research credibility of the researcher and the research institution may be damaged.

Malaysia adopted GCP in 1999, and since then doctors are required to undergo training on GCP leading to certification prior to participation in clinical trials. This course is specifically designed to meet this requirement.
