Clinical trials arrived in Poland at the end of the 90’s last century. Simultaneously higher standard of medical
care, modern and alternative methods of treatment were introduced.
At the same time International Clinical Research Organizations (CRO) started operating in Polish market. Young doctor,
pharmacists and biologists begun learning new profession – Clinical Research Associate (CRA). Also, The Bioethical
Committees and Central Register of Clinical Trials Data were set up. Today, it is named The Office for Registration
of Medicinal Products, Medical Devices and Biocidal Products.
Currently, over 20 years later, more than 400 clinical studies are conducted every year in Poland.
All activities in the scope of clinical research both prior to and during the process are obligatorily regulated
by Polish and UE law and international ethical standards.
Our GCPpl Association consists of around 1.000 members from pharmaceutical and CRO companies, medical doctors – investigators,
lawyers, study coordinators and pharmacists from research sites. On the whole, it includes all those who embrace
the idea of conducting clinical studies in accordance with the highest quality standards.
We do hope that this website will not only serve communication purposes but will also provide people seeking information
with all they need.
