AbstractThe Indian regulations for clinical trials were amended in January 2013 regarding reporting time lines, relatedness, and compensation for Serious Adverse Events (SAEs). Our study assessed the extent of regulatory compliance in reporting SAEs to the Institutional Ethics Committee (IEC) over 4 years (January 2009-January 2013) before and 18 months after (February 2013-July 2014) the amended regulations. SAE reports were studied retrospectively for reporting time lines, relatedness, compensation, and IEC response before and after the law revision. Before 2013 had 89/160 (55.6%) SAEs reports submitted late while in the after period, only 2/11 reports were delayed (18%). In the before period, 26 SAE reports mentioned "relatedness" of which only 15 (57.6%) stated about compensation. After 2013, all the 9 non-death reports were complete. The IEC took median 17 days to respond before 2013, while after 2013 responded within 5 days. Thus, there was poor compliance in terms of SAE reporting time lines before the revision of the law.
