About the Webinar

To allow a facilitated and reliable exchange of medicinal product information robustly and consistently, EMA has implemented a standards approach to handle four domains of master datain pharmaceutical regulatory processes: substance, product, organisation and referential (SPOR) master data.

This is intended to ensure wide interoperability across global regulatory and healthcare communities, which is critical in ensuring accurate analysis and unambiguous communication across different parties involved.

Starting from 2022, EMA has revised the process introducing a web-based approach, new functionalities, and requirements.

Main Topics

During the webinar, we will present and discuss:

  • the principles of ISO IDMP classification (including Implementation Guidelines)
  • EMA requirements
  • Implementation process
  • And the challenges for pharma companies

Structured and unstructured information management will be deep-dived to understand possible solutions approaches. 

The experiences of some pharmaceutical companies will also be illustrated. Further details will be available soon.

What will you learn during the Webinar?

The webinar will provide you with useful information to better manage IDMP-related activity to comply with regulatory requirements.
