The Guidelines for Good Operational Practice (GGOP)
The Guidelines for Good Operational Practice reaches its third iteration, new and improved
Published in 2018
Representing a framework of common standards for professional and operational practice in clinical research, the SCTO’s Guidelines for Good Operational Practice (GGOP) were thoroughly polished by the SCTO and experts from the CTU Network in early 2018. In addition to a more reader-friendly language throughout, revisions included updates in content and structure to reflect latest parameters in clinical research:
Version 3 of the GGOP is published separate from all its Appendices. Both the Guidelines themselves and its Appendix 1 (above) were newly revised in early 2018.
Appendices 2 (Data Management Guidelines), 3 (Guidelines for Risk-Adapted Monitoring), and 4 (Training and Education in Clinical Research in Switzerland), all marked “Under revision”, are currently being revised. The prior versions of them are available (below) until further notice. All annexes can be downloaded as individual PDFs.
