Registration tracking

Manage the complex task of medicinal product- and registration tracking, planning and reporting

Registration tracking, planning and reporting on clinical trial authorization applications and marketing authorization applications is a complex task due to the many variables across products and countries. 

The variables include descriptions and identifiers of registered products, substances, pharmaceutical products, packaged components and manufactured items to describe the content of products. It also includes the context of products such as, by whom is it registered where and since when; who approved it and who manufactured it. All of this type of information (and more) is to be registered to allow for attributing adverse events to the registered product, the pharmaceutical product, a packaged component, a drug substance or a manufacturer. With this, signal detection is to be improved and corrective actions can be made to reduce hospitalization and deaths due changes in any of those variables.

Lack of authoritative data sources and common terminology

Too often companies have multiple sources with differing terminology for the same information. As a result, employees cannot (fully) rely on the information in their Regulatory Information Management (RIM) system. It is obvious that the true data is somewhere, but lack of trust makes people set up their own spreadsheets/databases which need to be verified any time a question is raised. 

Regulators face the same problems having multiple sources for the same information and inconsistent terminology. Therefore, the EU regulators implemented an new structure called XEVMPD and initiated the development of ISO IDMP (a further extension of XEVMPD-like data and data types). Both, the EU-EMA and US-FDA have been developing standardized terminology to be used for XEVMPD reporting (EU only) and the IDMP structure. Industry should take advantage of these initiatives to manage unambiguous authoritative data sources within their own organizations, irrespective of a deadline for submitting this data as such to the health authorities.
