The eCTD (electronic Common Technical Document) is now mandatory for submissions in the EU and global regulatory agencies are also moving towards the eCTD as a standard submission process.

This intensive one-day course will provide an overview of eCTD submissions and clarify the main components required for a successful submission. The expert speakers will share their practical experiences of the eCTD and discuss how to implement efficient processes to build and publish submissions in both the EU and US.
