Compulsory registration of all clinical trials and results - please support the proposals


To all our UK members and supporters,

We are very pleased to see the below message from Sense About Science. Please join us and support the proposal by completing a short survey. (Details below. Please note that the survey closes very soon: 23:00 GMT on Monday 14 March 2022).

“We’re delighted to tell you and all supporters of the AllTrials campaign that the UK medicines regulator, MHRA, is proposing the compulsory registration of all clinical trials and results. This would be a huge advance in securing clinical trial transparency in the UK and set a powerful precedent for other countries, especially given the involvement of UK institutions in many international studies.

But the proposals are currently open for public consultation. To ensure they are not weakened, we need everyone to respond to the consultation and support the proposals.  

The MHRA survey takes about 5 minutes to complete, and you can skip sections that are not relevant to you. Please complete section 3. Research transparency and answer “yes” to each question.  

The consultation closes at 23:00 GMT on Monday 14 March 2022. Please help secure this historic victory for patients, researchers, pharmacists, doctors and regulators everywhere by completing the survey. Thank you.”

With thanks and best wishes,

The Cochrane UK team
