Technical Assurances

Last updated on 27 Aug 2020

Technical Assurance is the coordinated review process for studies that involve pharmacy (CTIMPs) and/or ionising radiation. 

There are two types of Technical Assurances – Pharmacy Assurance and Radiation Assurance.

Depending on how the Technical Assurance review is managed there may be a payment involved. Our review fee page has further information about when this applies and what this means.

You can also find out more about our Four Nations Technical Assurance Working Parties, which are UK-wide groups of experts who support us in continuing to develop both Technical Assurances and ensure that they continue to be fit for purpose.
