Overview of the webinar

  • Companies engaged in the conduct of human clinical trials must adhere to specific government regulatory requirements.  Certain documents, content and images related to a clinical trial must be stored and maintained, and depending on the regulatory jurisdiction, this body of information may be stored in a Trial Master File (TMF)
  • The TMF includes all of the documentation that a sponsor must record to demonstrate that they have met their obligations for the conduct of a clinical trial
  • The electronic version of the TMF, or the eTMF, is subject to the same requirements, and we will discuss options for establishing and managing eTMF documents
  • The Code of Federal Regulations states in 21 CFR 312.50
  • “Sponsors are responsible for… ensuring that the investigation(s) is conducted in accordance with the general investigational plan and protocols contained in the IND.”
