eCTD publishing

CTD (Common Technical Document) describes the organisation of the regulatory documents supporting the authorisation of medicinal products.



The eCTD (electronic CTD) is a harmonised technical solution to implementing the CTD electronically. It consists of PDF documents, arranged in a set structure with defined folder and document names. eCTD is to be used when submitting documentation to authorities.

eCTD requires a dedicated software that creates separate Table of Contents with hyperlinks to the included documents, XML backbones and hyperlinks between documents.

Clinical overview – eCTD module 2.5

The Clinical Overview is one of the most important documents on your way to Marketing Authorisation. It is an in-depth critical analysis of your complete drug development programme and its results, including discussion and interpretation of clinical findings.

The overview presents the strengths and limitations of your programme and study results and analyse clinical benefits and risks. It describes how study results support the critical parts of the prescribing information, such as indication, dosage, safety profile and more.

A clinical overview is needed also for generic- and hybrid applications but in these cases the key messages could generally be based on the reference product.

How to succeed with CMC variations

5 tips
1.      Make sure a Change Control (CC) case is opened and that a project is set up, together with relevant co-workers. This is important, also for smaller changes.

2.      Correct classification is key. Study the classification guideline carefully and ask a colleague for advice if you feel unsure. For non-standard variations, always confirm the classification with the agency.

3.      Go through your dossier, what documentation is affected by the change? Also consider documents outside module 3, such as the product information.

4.      Compile the variation package as required for your variation type and ask a colleague to review it with ”fresh” eyes before submitting to the agency.

5.      Be clear about agency timelines, when communicating with the manufacturer. This will facilitate well-planned and correct implementation of the change.

Seem complicated? Contact us. At RegFile we have extensive experience in CMC variations and extensions, both from industry and competent authorities.
