The CTSA Good Clinical Practices (GCP) Program is an international ethical and scientific quality standard for the design, conduct, and record of research involving humans. Comprising 13 core principles, GCP applies to all clinical investigations that could affect the safety and well-being of human participants (in particular, clinical trials of medicinal products). GCP was developed by the regulatory authorities of the EU, Japan, and US in a steering group termed the Tripartite International Conference on Harmonization (ICH) and provides international assurance that data and reported results of clinical investigations are credible and accurate and rights, safety, and confidentiality of participants in clinical research are respected and protected.
