One of the main features of the Clinical Trials Regulation (CTR) EU No 536/2014 repealing the Clinical Trials Directive is the creation of the EU portal and the EU database for clinical trials, which are intended to simplify and harmonize the submission, assessment and reporting of clinical trials. This Regulation gives the European Medicines Agency the responsibility to prepare, in collaboration with the Member States and the European Commission, the functional specifications for these systems.
