On November 16, 2007, December 21, 2007, and December 11, 2008, the National Institutes of Health (NIH) issued the following notices (respectively):

The purpose of this Notice is to clarify the role of the NIH in providing assistance for the registration of, and reporting of results for, applicable clinical trials as described under “Obtaining Assistance from NIH” in NOT-08-014.  The description of the role of NIH should read as follows:

Obtaining Assistance from NIH:

Mechanisms previously established by NIH Institutes and Centers (ICs) to directly assist funding recipients in registering and reporting results for applicable clinical trials with ClinicalTrials.gov, such as NIH-funded contractor support for ClinicalTrials.gov registration and the inclusion of NIH-funded extramural applicable clinical trials in IC-controlled organization accounts when the NIH is not the Responsible Party for the trial (as defined in FDAAA), are no longer being supported.  It is expected that the Responsible Party will undertake all activities associated with registration and reporting of results.  In general, Responsible Parties are required to affiliate their applicable clinical trials with their Institution’s organization account or their own individual account, as appropriate.  They will no longer be registered in an IC organization account.   While some IC staff may provide technical assistance as a public service during the process of transition from IC organization accounts and for registration, Responsible Parties are solely responsible for the content, quality and timeliness of registration and results reporting in accord with FDAAA.  Responsible Parties are encouraged to consult with appropriate local officials, including counsel, to ensure compliance with their obligations under FDAAA.  NIH ICs cannot in any way substitute for the Responsible Party in fulfilling its statutory duties.
