At MAC, behaving ethically is part of everything we do and we take pride in our commitment to industry regulations. However, as a leading provider of clinical trials we extend this commitment further, and openly disclose more than the compulsory information currently required. Our open approach is a driving factor that enables us to build strong relationships with sponsors, patients, employees, partners and the public. We aim to engage with these stakeholders at all times and realise their individual requirements to generate the trust needed to sustain our continued development.
A smooth and effective comprehensive process - with you every step of the way.
Ethics and Regulatory Submissions
The clinical trial ethics and regulatory process at MAC is very efficient, with effective time management applied to ensure deadlines are adhered to, for Central and Local submissions respectively. MAC has experience of working with ethics and regulatory frameworks on clinical trials globally. A study start-up team is arranged by Project Management (with a single point of contact), including Recruitment and Study Co-ordination teams. Having a depth of knowledge and understanding gained from an extensive background in conducting global clinical trials, the teams quickly and efficiently produce comprehensive study-specific documents generated and completed for ethics submission within required timelines.
