About Us

GCP-RMA is an association dedicated to the development of best practice for the management of Good Clinical Practice (GCP) records across all media.

The GCP-Records Managers Association was established in December 2001 as an independent group by several former members of the European Forum for Good Clinical Practice (EFGCP).

Since that time, its membership has grown to represent all countries across Europe, United States of America and Africa, with membership from many of the world’s leading pharmaceutical companies, CROs and Research Centres.  Member companies include: AbbVie, Astellas, Chiesi Farma, Chiltern International, Covance, GSK, Kowa Research Europe, LLC Pharma, LMK Clinical Research Consulting, Lundbeck, Mallinckrodt, NovoNordisk, Perceptive Informatics, Pfizer, Roche, Quintiles, Takeda and TIMI Study Group and Epicentre Research

In addition to publishing position papers on this website, the Association has published papers in a number of professional journals.  We pride ourselves on the active participation of all members in meetings and discussions, based on the trusted and confidential sharing of practices, ideas and interpretations of guidelines and legislation.

The Association has amongst its objectives the development of industry standards for the management of GCP records.

Recognising the global nature of clinical trials and the regulations that impact on records management, the GCP-RMA removed the restriction on members being located in Europe with effect from September 2012.
