Editing a submitted form or a 'push back'

Editing a submitted form

You can only edit a CTN when it is in draft status. See Edit a saved draft for more information.

However, if you have submitted a CTN form with an administrative error and it has not been processed:

  • We can return the CTN form to your Drafts list for editing (called a 'push back') upon request. See Editing a 'push back' below.

If you have submitted a CTN form to us and it has been processed:

  • Any further changes will need to be made by varying the notification via your Clinical Trials Repository. Please refer to Varying trial details for further information.

Editing a 'push back'

A submitted CTN form may be returned to your Drafts list for editing (called a 'push back') before it is processed. A 'push back' may occur upon request or may be initiated by us during processing.

  • You can contact us at clinical.trials@health.gov.au to request a 'push back' to correct an administrative error. Provide the details of the CTN such as the Application ID and the reason for the 'push back'.
  • During processing, we may initiate a 'push back' if it appears you have entered data incorrectly on the CTN form.

The returned CTN form will appear in red in your Drafts list.

To access your Drafts list, select View Drafts from within the Portal menu. See Edit a saved draft for information on how to access and edit a draft CTN.

Make the required changes to your draft. The returned CTN form will need to be saved and validated before it can be submitted again. See Validation.
