During clinical research starting from the time of approval, the sponsor must submit a Development Safety Update Report (DSUR) to the State Agency of Medicines and ethics committee once a year and no later than 60 days after the end of the period of review laid down by the protocol. The report must include updated information regarding all of the serious unexpected suspected adverse reactions observed during the year, as well as a summary regarding safety of research subjects during the clinical trial. If the clinical trial duration does not exceed one year, the safety report may be submitted together with the clinical trial report upon completion of the trial.
