The Research Governance and Integrity Team (RGIT) has produced Standard Operating Procedures (SOPs) and associated templates for Imperial College investigators and research staff, governing the management and operational aspects of conducting clinical research.

This section contains the RGIT approved:

  • Standard Operating Procedures (SOPs)
  • Associated document: covers guidance and templates associated with the RGIT SOPs
  • Non-associated documents (which may cover guidance notes or templates etc)

Please note, all SOPs are referenced with RGIT_SOP_XXX and the associated templates are referenced with RGIT_TEMP_XXX. The SOPs are all in PDF format and the SOPs are generic, please adapt them to make study-specific procedures. The associated documents and templates will be made available in Word format for ease of completion.

Please refer to this page often as the most up-to-date version of each SOP will appear on this page. If you have any questions please contact a member of the RGIT.

Please note the new IRAS system for CTIMP studies will be mandated by the HRA from 1st January 2022, the RGIT will therefore not be accepting old IRAS application forms for sponsorship review from the 1st October 2021. Information on the new system can be found here.
