Comply with ICH E6 (R2)

The ICH E6 (R2) GCP Guideline became final in November 2016. As noted in the Guideline, since the original ICH E6 (R1) was released, clinical trials were performed in a largely paper-based process. E6 (R2) was developed to address the increased scale, complexity, and cost of clinical trials, and to include the advances that have been made in electronic data recording and reporting technologies, as well as the implementation of other approaches and, in fact, encourages the implementation of improved and more efficient approaches to clinical trial design, conduct, oversight, recording and reporting while continuing to ensure human subject protection and reliability of trial results.
