Expected changes in the BROK®In 2019, the ‘Basiscursus Regelgeving en Organisatie voor Klinisch onderzoekers’ (BROK®, translation: Basic Course for Regulations and Organization for Clinical Researchers) will change. The NFU has signed a contract with Elevate Health to develop a new eBROK®. This has consequences for everyone who is currently following or intends to follow the eBROK® in the near future. The current eBROK® environment will close on 1st May 2019. This means that anyone who has already registered for the BROK® must complete the course including passing the exam before 1 May 2019.
The new eBROK® course will be available from 1 February 2019, onwards. This means that until 1 February 2019 it will not be possible to register for a BROK® course.
Re-registration changes with the new eBROK®
The new eBROK® will provide the possibility for re-registrants to go through the re-registration process online. From 1 February, people for whom the BROK® will soon expire can register as a re-registrant in the new eBROK® learning environment. More information will follow.
