Disclosure obligation under art. 19 of Directive (EU) 2019/790 and the proposal for transposing it in Poland
Work on a Polish legislative proposal for transposition of the Directive on copyright and related rights in the Digital Single Market (Directive 2019/790) is still at an early stage, even though the deadline for transposition has passed. As the process to enact the legislation proceeds, this is a good time to look at the proposal for the provisions that realize the transparency obligation (art. 19 of the Directive). The new rules will have a major impact on the relationship between holders of economic copyright and those making use of it.

The new legislation is intended to aid in the conducting of business in Poland by simplifying the applicable procedures and requirements. In addition to changes to administrative and civil procedures to promote alternative dispute resolution, the act introduces a range of solutions strictly related to conducting business in Poland.

The EMA has released official guidance on the protection of personal data and commercially confidential information in the Clinical Trials Information System (CTIS)
It is compulsory to use the Clinical Trials Information System (CTIS) when filing any new applications for clinical trials from 31 January 2023. The CTIS is a website designed for the implementation of Regulation 536/2014 on clinical trials. Although the regulation was adopted almost ten years ago, there is still uncertainty surrounding the implementation of the regulation’s requirements concerning greater transparency of clinical trials and, in particular, the scope of information to be published in the CTIS.
