Clinical Trial Insurance

Since 2007, Clinical Trial Insurance has been introduced to offer protection to researchers who are involved in clinical trials recruiting human subjects. To offer broader coverage in clinical trials, a new insurance company (Newline Asia Services Pte. Ltd.) has been chosen with effect from 1 July 2015.

Investigators should assess the risk level of their trials and decide whether or not to join the scheme. Applications, including application form, updated CREC ethics approval letter and protocol, should be submitted to CRMO for follow-up.

*Please note the policy exclude:

  1. Trials involving research subjects who are pregnant at the time of the trials unless with prior approval
  2. Trials involving research subjects who are under age of 3 years at the time of the trials unless with prior approval

PIs are suggested to specify in the study protocol whether pregnant women and child under age of 3 years are involved
