Newcastle University CDA

A Confidential Disclosure Agreement (CDA), also known as a Non­Disclosure Agreement (NDA), is a legal contract between at least two parties that outlines confidential information or knowledge the parties wish to share with one another for certain purposes, but to which they wish to restrict access to. It is a contract through which the parties agree not to disclose information covered by the agreement. A CDA creates a legal relationship between the parties to protect any type of confidential information.

CDAs can be ‘mutual’or 'multiparty', meaning both parties are restricted in their use of the confidential information provided, or ‘one way’ only restricting the use of confidential information by a single party.

PLEASE NOTE THAT THE LEGAL OFFICE NEEDS TO HAVE THE SUBMISSION OF A QUESTIONNAIRE AT LEAST TWO WEEKS PRIOR TO A SCHEDULED MEETING IF WITH ONE PARTY AND MINIMUM OF THREE MONTHS NOTICE IF SEVERAL PARTIES ARE INVOLVED IF POSSIBLE.

THIS IS IN ORDER FOR AN AGREEMENT TO BE DRAFTED, REVIEWED BY ALL PARTIES, AMENDED WHERE NECESSARY AND FOR ALL PARTIES TO EXECUTE THE AGREEMENT PRIOR TO THE MEETING.

If your CDA relates to reviewing a protocol for a Commercially Sponsored Trial in your capacity as an Honorary NHS Clinical, then please contact Layla McMullen (Layla.McMullen@nuth.nhs.uk) in the first instance.
