  • Be open to all prospective registrants (ICMJE)
    • Either internationally or within one or more specific countries
  • Be able to collect and publicly display the WHO Trial Registration Data Set (ICMJE)
    • Some registries may choose to make all 20 items mandatory before they will accept registration
  • Endeavour to keep registered information up-to-date
  • Never remove a trial once it has been registered
