Australia is internationally recognised for the quality of its scientific and medical research. Our shores are host to a highly trained and experienced clinical workforce, backed by state-of-the-art facilities across in-vitro, treatment and analytical domains. As an ICH region with mandatory adherence to Good Clinical Practice and with a clinical environment broadly similar to those of the US, UK and much of Europe, Australian clinical trial data are generally accepted by the major regulators worldwide including the FDA and EMA. Our multicultural society provides immense capacity to meet a broad range of recruitment needs.

Australia’s highly efficient ethics and regulatory framework can substantially reduce both the time and cost associated with the preparation of extensive regulatory applications. The predominance of clinical trials in Australia fall under the remit of the Clinical Trial Notification scheme, within which a review cycle can typically be completed within 4-8 weeks, allowing you to begin you trial significantly sooner.

Australia has generous tax incentives in place to encourage investment in Research and Development. Companies with an aggregated annual turnover of less than A$20 million receive a 45% refundable tax offset and all other eligible companies receive a 40% non-refundable tax offset. International businesses are not required to hold intellectual property in Australia and clinical trials can be considered as eligible R&D activities.

Australia’s geographic location offers a number of advantages to Companies operating out of the Northern hemisphere. Its opposing seasons afford the distinct advantage of being able to extend trial duration in clime or seasonally sensitive interventions.
