RAPS to Host eCTD Submissions Workshop in Brussels

First Time in Europe for Popular RAPS Workshop on Electronic Regulatory Submissions

Rockville, MD (Vocus) April 8, 2010 -- Bringing its popular interactive workshop to Europe for the first time, the Regulatory Affairs Professionals Society (RAPS) will host Preparing Compliant eCTD Submissions in Brussels, 5–7 May. This introductory workshop guides participants on how to prepare and submit an electronic Common Technical Document (eCTD), the increasingly accepted global standard for pharmaceutical regulatory submissions to agencies including the European Medicines Agency (EMA) and the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA).

The hands-on workshop will be led by renowned expert faculty including Antoinette Azevedo, president,, and Hans van Bruggen, MSc, director of Qdossier. Preparing Compliant eCTD Submissions will be held 5–7 May at the Radisson Blu Royal Hotel Brussels. For more information, visit

“Preparing Compliant eCTD Submissions is one of RAPS’ most consistently popular workshops. It has been held numerous times and typically sells out quickly,” said RAPS Executive Director Sherry Keramidas, PhD, CAE. “Bringing this highly-regarded learning opportunity to Europe for the first time is another part of our plans to expand global access to RAPS resources and better serve the needs of regulatory professionals in Europe and throughout the world.”

RAPS opened its European office in Brussels last year and its Tokyo office in 2008.

Learning how to prepare and submit a compliant eCTD is now a core skill for many regulatory professionals. The eCTD format is required by EMA for Centralised Procedure applications and by FDA’s Center for Drug Evaluation and Research. Under the most recent version of the Prescription Drug User Fee Act (PDUFA IV), passed in 2007, FDA will implement a single electronic review environment for all FDA Centers by 2013. Health Canada also implemented an electronic review environment for eCTD submissions this year. However, regulatory authorities receiving eCTD submissions have reported serious problems with lack of compliance with the format and difficulty navigating the electronic files submitted. The aim of the RAPS workshop is to help regulatory professionals develop the necessary eCTD knowledge and skills they may lack.
