NCAT must approve all clinical trials which seek to involve a person aged 16 years or older with a decision making disability.
NCAT can only approve a clinical trial if it is satisfied that the trial meets certain criteria. Refer to the
Clinical trials fact sheet [PDF, 56kB] for further information.
Applications for the approval of a clinical trial can only be made by a representative of the pharmaceutical company proposing the trial or by the principal investigator of a centre proposing to conduct the trial.
Complete the clinical trials application form and lodge with NCAT's Guardianship Division. There is no fee for lodging a clinical trial application.
