CRD Databases

DARE and NHS EED archives secure on CRD website until at least 2021

CRD would like to reassure our many thousands of users that we are committed to maintaining archive versions of DARE and NHS EED until at least 2021 (the point to which we have funds to support maintenance).

We know the databases remain a valuable resource to those seeking to find out if reviews and economic evaluations have already been done before embarking on new projects, and in providing brief critical reviews and bottom line statements of these.

CRD will continue to maintain and add records to the HTA database until 31st March 2017 at which point a decision about future production will be taken in partnership with INAHTA.
