Efficient reviewing of electronic submissions

EURS (EXTEDO Universal Review System, formerly called EURS is Yours) is a multifunctional software solution that serves as an overall eCTD validation and reviewing software tool. It reports whether a submitted eCTD- or NeeS-based application conforms to the official eCTD format.

It is especially designed for the validation, acceptance, import, review and maintenance requirements of the EMA (European Medicines Agency), the associated national competent authorities (NCAs), and also of authorities outside of the European Union, e.g. the FDA or the Swissmedic. It operates on basic hardware and software.

EURS is independently controlled by EMA and NCAs. It is updated regularly to reflect changes in the ICH eCTD Specification and/or Module 1 Specifications, ICH-developments and developments by authorities in the context of the EMA driven eCTD Implementation Group. EXTEDO designed and implemented EURS as a standardised software solution covering the EURS specifications and the extensions to these specifications.

Supporting complex reviewing processes

Once an eCTD submission has been imported within EURS by the agency, its drug approval maintenance life cycle starts.

With EURS you can access the submissions to search, view, and/or annotate them or you can print certain regulatory documents. Self-explanatory icons mark added, deleted,  replaced, and appended documents (i.e. every version-related change of the dossier). It supports you in organizing and filtering submissions by certain regulatory activities that represent the overall regulatory status of a drug product.

EURS allows different users to access a dossier simultaneously. A sophisticated caching mechanism (Central Repository) can be implemented especially for using EURS in internationally distributed workgroup communities to reduce network traffic and waiting periods. EURS can also be integrated into state-of-the-art document management systems by using standard interfaces.

Functional overview

EURS runs on various types of IT infrastructures (standalone, groupware) and provides the following:

  • Intuitive and configurable user interface
  • Configurable validation support to verify eCTD compliance according to the published validation criteria of the regulatory agencies throughout the world.
  • Fast and accurate import procedure into a standard eCTD or NeeS repository supporting out-of-sequence imports
  • Efficient handling of huge numbers of dossiers and their submissions
  • The use of PDF annotations, highlights, and hyperlinks without changing the originally submitted PDF documents.
  • Easy-to-use search functions based on full text for documents, eCTD-envelopes, table of content elements, and review annotations.
  • Intuitive user-interface with an integrated, context-sensitive online help to improve the electronic reviewing processes
  • Configuration of individual variables that can also include envelope information. These variables can be used for full-text search as well as for grouping of dossiers in the project explorer of EURS.

From an authority’s point of view, the most important features of EURS are the ability to access submissions quickly and to cover the entire life-cycle of a drug product.
