In-Country Clinical Caretaker (ICCC) Services

In-depth ICCC Experience

CMIC Group acts as an In-Country Clinical Caretaker (ICCC) for overseas sponsors. Individuals who intend to sponsor a clinical trial in Japan, while residing outside of the country shall appoint an ICCC residing in Japan, who is eligible to sponsor the clinical trial on their behalf. When acting as an ICCC in place of the foreign sponsor, CMIC conducts all procedures for regulatory authority, medical institutions, etc., on the foreign sponsor’s behalf. However, the foreign sponsor has final responsibility for the clinical trial.

The fundamental ICCC services are: managing regulatory interactions and safety reporting.
