On Demand Webinar | Inspection Readiness: is your company ready?

Apr 6, 2022 | Events, Regulated Document Management, Webinars

On the 28th of April, we conducted the webinar “Inspection Readiness: is your company ready?”, in collaboration with Agatha Inc.

During our webinar, we explored what it means when regulatory authorities require a clinical trial sponsor to maintain the Trial Master File in a state of “inspection readiness”.

We talked about the challenges of being inspection ready at all times, and discussed why that goal is essentially impossible without the use of an electronic Trial Master File (eTMF).

With the collaboration of one of our Partners, Agatha Inc., we looked at an example, and illustrated five specific ways that an eTMF helps ensure inspection readiness.

Watching the replay of the webinar, you will learn what you need to do to ensure your TMF content and data is ready whenever the auditors come.

Here are some of the questions we focused on answering:

  • what do Regulatory Authorities mean by the requirement to be “Inspection Ready”?
  • How does an eTMF solution ensure Inspection Readiness?
  • What are the five key capabilities an eTMF must have to ensure Inspection readiness?
  • What does it take to implement an eTMF application?
  • How do you make the case for bringing an eTMF application into your organisation?
