Complying with eTMF archiving and data management regulations is a challenge
Traditional storage practices do not guarantee compliance
Clinical trial sponsors are required to retain the eTMF for at least 25 years.
Effective digital archiving & preservation is required to ensure;
- Data is not corrupted or lost
- Information can be easily found
- Files do not become obsolete
- Secure access can be granted to inspectors
- A full audit trail is recorded.
And importantly, any solution must meet rigorous quality standards (QMS/CSV/GxP).
