VetAllTrials ( is an emerging international consortium dedicated to the development of one or more veterinary clinical trial registries. The group is also involved in the development of policies and standards that support the open access publication of research outcomes and clinical trial data – worldwide. The World Health Organization asserts that the registration of all interventional trials is a scientific, ethical and moral responsibility.

VetAllTrials is aligned with the broader AllTrials initiative which is focused on clinical trials in human medicine. AllTrials currently has support from approximately 85,000 individuals and 575 organisations. The AllTrials ethos is All trials registered, all results reported.

While there are many similarities, veterinary medicine has unique technical and knowledge representation requirements, incentives, policies and resource constraints compared to human medicine. This panel presentation will highlight the objectives, requirements, challenges and work to begin to harmonize requirements and specifications with existing clinical trial registry environments such as or the WHO International Clinical Trial Registry Platform.
