    Goals / Remit

    ACRO and its members advocate on a global basis for safe, ethical, high-quality medical research so patients can benefit from the development of new treatments and therapies. Our members are dedicated to helping their clients bring efficiency, innovation and value to the clinical research process.

    The Association of Clinical Research Organizations (ACRO) represents both (1) the world's leading, global clinical research organizations (CROs) and (2) global technology companies. Our member companies provide a wide range of specialized services across the entire spectrum of development for new drugs, biologics and medical devices – from discovery, pre-clinical, proof of concept and first-in-man studies through post-approval and pharmacovigilance research. ACRO advances clinical outsourcing to improve the quality, efficiency and safety of biomedical research.

    Main EU files targeted

    As the voice of leading global CROs (clinical research organizations) and global technology companies, ACRO monitors and analyzes initiatives, policies, legislation, and regulation impacting clinical research and drug development. In addition to participating in numerous public consultations and numerous industry stakeholder workshops on multiple topics within the clinical research enterprise, ACRO and its members are deeply engaged in addressing the requirements of the EU Clinical Trial Regulation and the General Data Protection Regulation. ACRO also follows initiatives and policies on innovation in clinical research and trial design -- in addition to the increasing digitization of clinical trials (e.g., decentralized clinical trials; electronic consent; electronic signatures; and emerging topics such as the potential and promise of artificial intelligence and machine learning to assist in drug development).
