This is the original version (as it was originally made).

PART IXREPORTING OF REGULATORY STUDY RESULTS

General

1.—(1) A final report should be prepared for each regulatory study. In the case of short-term studies, a standardised final report accompanied by a study specific extension may be prepared.

(2) Reports of principal investigators or scientists involved in the regulatory study should be signed and dated by them.

(3) The final report should be signed and dated by the study director to indicate acceptance of responsibility for the validity of the data. The extent of compliance with these principles of good laboratory practice should be indicated.

(4) Corrections and additions to a final report should be in the form of amendments. Amendments should clearly specify the reason for the corrections or additions and should be signed and dated by the study director.

(5) Reformatting of the final report to comply with the submission requirements of a national registration or regulatory authority does not constitute a correction, addition or amendment to the final report.
