GCP: Good Clinical Practice – Quality Norms

All research members, including doctors and personnel, have been trained on Good Clinical Practices and meet these standards daily. A recertification of the GCP is done every 2 years.

Good Clinical Practice (GCP) is an international standard of ethical and scientific quality which applies to the design and implementation of trials involving human subjects and the recording and presentation of data. Respect of such a standard provides public assurance that the rights, safety and welfare of subjects participating in the trials are protected in accordance with the principles derived from the Declaration of Helsinki, and that the clinical data is reliable.

IATA and WHMIS: Handling and Transport of hazardous materials

Many research studies require shipment of biological products and shipment of hazardous materials by courier. In that effect, all research employees participate in a training regarding handling of hazardous materials (WHMIS) and shipping of hazardous materials (IATA).

WHMIS represents the data processing on hazardous materials used Canada-wide. IATA is the International Airport Transport Association. This association emits the norm regarding air transport security. These norms have also been applied to ground shipping in many countries.


Ethics committee: validation and approval of research studies

Respect and patient safety is crucial in research. For this reason, every studies conducted by ovo r&d are reviewed and approved by an independent Review Board (IRB). This committee is composed of experts in ethics, external members, physicians and employees knowledgeable in the methods or research domains. Oversees the ethical nature of the study, the compliance to the protocol as well as patient safety.

If you are currently participating in a research project and have questions regarding your rights as a participant in a study; if you would like to discuss with someone that has no ties to the research study; or if you would like to form a complaint you can communicate with the person in charge at (514) 798-2000 ext 756. This person will transfer your contact information to the president of the ethics committee.

Health Canada

Every research project involving the use of medication (off-label medication, new dose) has to be submitted and reviewed by Health Canada. Health Canada has the right to visit research study sites that they have approved. Health Canada requirements in regards to documentation and structure are very elevated. Our research and development department aim for the highest quality standards. We develop and regulate all our research projects according to the norms and requirements of Health Canada, whether the studies are of interventional or observational nature.

ovo r&d has been audited by Health Canada in February 2012. Our research and development department has gained recognition and is compliant with Health Canada norms and requirements.
