ER Policy Regarding Non-Essential Documentation

Canadian Cancer Trials Group retains copies of all required ethics and regulatory documents in accordance with section 8 of Good Clinical Practice and applicable regulatory requirements.

Occasionally centres submit documentation that we are not required to retain (i.e., safety report submissions to the REB). The Ethics and Regulatory Group may shred documents that are not required. Centres will not be notified if documents are shredded.

Further information can be found in the memo posted on our external website at If you have any questions regarding this memo, please contact Erin Bell (, Ethics Team Leader.
