The FDA and the OHRP announced the finalized version of the regulatory guidance document for electronic informed consent (eIC) “Use of Electronic Informed Consent—Questions and Answers” December 2016. The guidance document represents the current thinking of these regulatory agencies and are recommendations, but like this one, sometimes include requirements where applicable. It is of note that the FDA and OHRP combined their guidance together into one document to support ongoing efforts to harmonize between the agencies. This is great news for those that consent under FDA regulated trials and / or government sponsored research! This emphasizes the point that an eIC solution needs to be flexible to support very simple to complex projects, as well as from high-risk treatment to non-interventional studies.
