Assure compliance with CDISC requirements?


This course will introduce you with a current thinking of the Food and Drug Administration (FDA or Agency) on the topic and provide you with useful specifications, recommendations, and general considerations on how to submit electronic Common Technical Document (eCTD)-based electronic submissions to the Center for Drug Evaluation and Research (CDER) or the Center for Biologics Evaluation and Research (CBER).

Why should you attend:

Despite there being extensive information available from FDA and other regulatory bodies regarding eCTD submission, creating one and submitting it through the electronic submission gateway (ESG) of the FDA, is a daunting task even for those proficient in computer systems and coding languages. The off-the-shelf software and consultations available are prohibitively expensive not only in the capital investment required but also in terms of the time needed for getting a submission ready.

Learning objectives:

•       What are the requirements for electronic datasets in eCTD submissions?
•      Where are the contents of clinical datasets located in the eCTD structure for: tabulation datasets, analysis-                ready datasets and programs, and patient profiles?
•       What approaches should be taken to assure submission-readiness of datasets?
•       How can the datasets package be remediate for submission if the deliverables are not submission-ready?
•       What is the impact of CDISC and what steps should be taken now to assure compliance with CDISC                           requirements?
•       What steps should be taken if electronic datasets are not available?

•       Overview of the drug development program and source of relevant submission documents
