Welcome to SANCTR

The South African National Clinical Trials Register (SANCTR) provides the public with updated information on clinical trials on human participants being conducted in South Africa. The Register provides you with information on a trials purpose; who can participate, where the trial is located, and contact details.

Additionally, SANCTR is an important tool for monitoring and managing new clinical trials. The questions being investigated, findings of studies as well as mapping of locations, funders, funding, research institutions and progress towards developing new capacity in the area are some of the issues that the register can assist the research community in addressing.

The South African National Clinical Trials Register (SANCTR) provides the public with updated information on clinical trials on human participants being conducted in South Africa. In November 2005 the Department of Health issued a notice that as from the 1st December 2005 all new clinical trials to be conducted in the country must be registered in the South African National Clinical Trials Register. The notice also explained that trials that started recruiting as of 1st July 2005 must also be registered.
