Clinical trial research agreements

VMIA, in collaboration with interstate health departments and industry agencies, has developed a set of uniformly accepted standard Clinical Trial Research Agreements (CTRAs).

Investigator Initiated Agreement

The Investigator Initiated Agreement can be used when your institute is either engaging or is being engaged to conduct an investigator initiated clinical trial. It does not constitute the agreement between the pharmaceutical company and your institute for the provision of product and/or financial support.

Clinical Trials Research Agreements can be found on the Medicines Australia website.

A dedicated clinical investigation agreement for commercially sponsored studies of medical technology is available from the Medical Technology Association of Australia (MTAA) website, along with forms of indemnity and compensation guidelines.
