Electronic record and document content management system with electronic submission to regulatory agencies (eCTD).

Since 1990, ICH (International Conference on Harmonization) has been working to create a standardized framework for drug and biological product registration. An expert working group within ICH is working on the eCTD (electronic control technical document) specification, an electronic equivalent to paper CTD. An eCTD is primarily a specification for interfacing between the regulatory agency and the industry to enable the transfer of regulatory information while at the same time facilitating the initiation, creation, review, lifecycle management and archival of the electronic submission.
