The Certara formula

Assure and accelerate a successful regulatory submission

Partner with our team of expert regulatory operations specialists and publish with our proven eCTD software

Electronic Common Technical Document (eCTD) is the standard format for regulatory submission to many worldwide health authorities. eCTD format is required for submissions ranging from investigational applications to marketing authorizations, and all lifecycle management documentation in between (such as amendments, supplements, and annual reports). The International Council for Harmonisation (ICH) introduced eCTD formatting requirements for health authorities including: FDA’s Center for Drug Evaluation and Research (CDER) and Center for Biologics Evaluation and Research (CBER); EMA, MHRA, Swiss Medic, TGA, and Health Canada.

eCTD publishing can be complicated and costly, especially as regulatory agencies require even more submission-types in electronic formats. These include eCTD submissions in support of New Drug Applications (NDAs), Marketing Authorisation Applications (MAAs), New Drug Submissions (NDS), Investigational New Drug (IND) applications, and many more. In addition, maintaining compliance will be increasingly difficult as regulatory requirements and mandates change across markets.

Certara provides the services to help avoid common issues that can lead to submission rejections by partnering with a team of experts who have a proven track record of success in regulatory submissions, compliance, and eCTD management software.

Certara ensures efficient, timely submissions through our GlobalSubmit eCTD software and our experienced team of regulatory operations and eCTD publishing specialists.

Whether you are seeking a full-fledged regulatory operations consultancy to act as your department, a provider for occasional overflow support, or licensable eCTD software solutions, Certara offers partnership models customized to meet any and all of your needs.
