Site Access Agreement
A Site Access Agreement is often required when research work at a Sponsor’s site requires access by UT and/or UT’s authorized subcontractors for purposes of taking samples, simple site walks, or to conduct testing. Site Access Agreements typically include tailored provisions delimiting specific areas of access, precise locations, notice and duration limits, as well as carefully constructed insurance and indemnification requirements.
There are three key components of a site access agreement:
- Delineation of the scope of access (where, how long, type of sampling)
- Party obligations (notice, removal of obstacles to access, safety, facilitation)
- Allocation of liability (site damage, delay and interruption, injury, insurance)
