Simplify your authoring process of eCTD dossiers with eCTDtemplates

Retain consistency, cut down review times and optimize dossier production.

Creating documents for electronic submissions can be a time-consuming, inconsistent process involving many different authors, working with numerous different files.

eCTDtemplates provide a simple way to create consistent and compliant dossiers in eCTD (electronic Common Technical Document) and other formats.

All eCTD dossiers start their life as a set of individual documents, authored around common structures and containing standard information. With each individual author writing in their own style, the resulting documents are often inconsistent in appearance and format. This often leads to a lengthy review, both internally and at the agencies.

Through their library of over 1600 pre-written Microsoft Word templates, eCTDtemplates deliver a common starting point for all your technical documentation. By ensuring consistent authoring standards, it enables authors to focus on content and automate the style. This reduces common errors and provides a harmonized structure for non-regulatory personnel.

Reduce re-work and speed up approvals

Inconsistent writing styles and non-compliant information within documentation can lead to time-consuming updates and rewrites. At best, this could result in approvals being delayed by the authorities or worse, it can result in agencies refusing to accept files during their technical assessment.

Through the provision of inline guidance text for authors, eCTDtemplates indicate what information needs to be entered into each individual area for each document type. EXTEDO’s eCTDtemplates also ensure that your information is structured consistently and accurately entered. This enables reviewers to quickly locate the information they need and make process reviews and approvals faster.
