Footnote 3

As per the Part C, Division 5 of the Food and Drug Regulations (Drugs for Clinical Trials Involving Human Subjects) and Guidance Document For Clinical Trial Sponsors: Clinical Trial Applications, the Clinical Protocol Number must be assigned by the sponsor for each protocol when submitting the CTA to Health Canada. Sponsors are encouraged to include a protocol number for Pre-CTA meeting requests if available.

In general, a protocol number is a variable length, alpha-numeric sequence used by sponsors to assign a reference number to their protocol. As per the Guidance for Completing the Drug Submission Application Form, the protocol number for clinical trials should remain the same for the duration of the trial.

When updating their documents, including protocols, sponsors should, in accordance with their internal record/document management practices, apply version control principles. When submitting a CTA-Amendment or Notification, sponsors should indicate the version or amendment number of the protocol; however, certain best practices apply, as outlined below. These practices help to avoid the incorrect issuance of dossier IDs, processing and tracking in Health Canada systems.

The correct numbering of the protocol version or amendment provided in CTA-A or CTA-N is:
E.g.: HCPM022 - Version dated xxxxxx (HCPM022 - Amendment 1)
Root/origin Versioning

Best practices:

  1. The complete root/original protocol number must always be indicated on forms and documents where the protocol number is indicated eg: cover letter, protocol, HC/SC 3011, ICFs. It is not sufficient to only provide the version or amendment number
    1. Correct: HCPM022 - Amendment 1
    2. Correct: HCPM022 - Version dated xxxxx
    3. Incorrect: 001
    4. Incorrect: Amendment 1
  2. Adding prefix or suffix to indicate amendment numbers is not acceptable.
    1. Correct: HCPM022 - Amendment 1
    2. Incorrect: 1-HCPM022-001
  3. The amendment or version number should be indicated as outlined below:
    1. Correct: HCPM022 - Amendment 1
    2. Incorrect: HCPM022 - 001
