This code of conduct develops 237 requirements in order to comply with GDPR in the 23 possible services provided by CROs detailed in the code. In order to a CRO can adhere to the code of conduct, CRO must deliver at least one service of those described and obtain the approval of a Supervisory Body called COSUP. Both, EUCROF members and non-members will be able to adhere to this code of conduct.
