If an agency in a member state (such as a Ministry of Health or a National Regulatory Authority) is interested in establishing a new clinical trial registry that complies with WHO criteria (or improving an existing registry), or in establishing policies that require registration in an existing Primary Registry, then they can approach the ICTRP for support. The types of support requested will vary and depend on the specific needs of the member state. It may include:
The ICTRP works with only 1 registry per member state, and encourages collaboration across member states to build regional solutions, particularly when languages are shared. If a member state has more than one registry then it is up to that member state to determine which one will be the national registry.
