We have summarized the major differences of clinical trial regulations in UK and EU.

Following Brexit, the European regulatory framework for clinical trials, namely the new EU Clinical Trials Regulation (EU) 536/2014 EUCTR, which took effect on 31.Jan.2022 no longer applies in Great Britain (i.e. England, Wales, and Scotland).
