Promoting Participant Safety

While providing a variety of services to biopharmaceutical clients, CROs ultimately have two core responsibilities: to ensure the safety of research participants and to ensure the integrity of research data. ACRO members have been in the forefront of adhering to and promoting the International Council on Harmonization’s Good Clinical Practice guidelines for clinical trials.

As leaders in the move toward the globalization of pharmaceutical development, ACRO members take their responsibilities seriously and work to promote the development of strong regulatory infrastructures in countries where clinical trials take place. Further, ACRO members invest heavily in clinical staff training, education and advanced equipment that not only facilitates clinical trials, but also expands access to, and enhances the level of health care provided, in many countries.
