Guidelines for data sharing
Strong scientific rationale: There must be a strong scientific argument or other legitimate rationale for the data to be used for the requested purpose.
No data can be released if it compromises an ongoing trial: Investigators who have invested time and effort into developing a trial should have a period of exclusivity before key trial data are made available to other researchers.
Complying with Information Governance and Data Protection: All data exchange must comply with Information Governance and Data Protection Policies in all countries relevant to the disclosure.
Please refer to the Data Sharing SOP for full details of CHaRT’s data sharing process.
