3. Is the CRICE Access Card applicable only to sales representative? Are Clinical Research Associates (CRAs) required to do the CRICE training?

The Digital CRICE Access Card is applicable to any person representing the company and entering the clinical environment. 

CRA’s who visit HCP rooms to monitor/audit clinical research within facilities are not required to complete the training, as sufficient policies exist to provide adequate protection to trial participants. However, CRA’s who may be required to enter clinical environments beyond the HCP rooms (such as ward, ICU etc) are required to complete the CRICE Excluding Sterile Field programme. 

Very Important: You will not qualify to receive a Digital CRICE Access Card unless you are currently representing a bona-fide company that conducts activities requiring access into hospitals in South Africa.
