Awareness Programme For Training Institutions on Good
Clinical Practice Professional Certification Scheme (GCPPCS)
Department of Biotechnology (DBT), Ministry of Science & Technology, Government of India launched CDSA on 28 September 2009 as an extramural unit of Translational Health Science & Technology Institute (THSTI). It was created to facilitate development of affordable healthcare products for public health diseases. Registered as a not-for profit research organization, it aims to develop an eco-system for training and learning and work with public sector institutions, and small and medium enterprises (SME) to translate innovative technologies into medical products for public good.
There is an ever-growing demand for trained and certified Good Clinical Practice (GCP) professionals in the clinical research arena both in academia and in industry. Setting up an uniform system to achieve the desired competence standard using internationally accepted best practice for ‘Assessment’ and ‘Certification’ is the key to addressing this unmet need.
To this end, a Certification Scheme for GCP professionals based on the International ‘Personnel Certification’ standard (ISO 17024:2012) has been developed by CDSA-THSTI.
The GCP professional certification scheme has two aspects – a system of accreditation of Training Institutions to ensure standardised, high-quality GCP training and GCP Professionals Certification (by Third-Party Certification) to promote certification of professionals both within the country and across the globe.
GCPPCS is owned by the Clinical Development Services Agency (CDSA)-Translational Health Science & Technology Institute (THSTI). THSTI is an autonomous institution under the Department of Biotechnology, Ministry of Science & Technology, Government of India. CDSA-THSTI as Scheme Owner, has the Steering Committee, Technical Committee and Assessment Committee to draft, review and approve the relevant documents and effective implementation of the Scheme. These committees are comprised of multiple stakeholders for example subject and process experts with representatives from ministries, regulator, government agencies, industry, academia, accreditation body, certification body, training institutions and civil society organisations.
