eCF Meets with EMA GCP Inspectors eSource Group, London, 1st December 2015
Representatives from the eClinical Forum and members of the EMA GCP Inspectors eSource group met in London 1st December to discuss controls for Electronic Data Capture in Clinical Trials. Discussion allowed the two sides to better understand requirements, current concerns and potential solutions. A White Paper and Checklist developed by the eCF to address compliance concerns was discussed and some initial thoughts for areas of clarification, questions to be addressed, inconsistencies to fix were identified. The eCF will produce an updated document incorporating feedback expected from EMA and FDA inspectors ready for release for review by partners during quarter 1/2 2015. A follow up meeting is proposed for June 2015 with a number of representative stakeholders in this area. 

New Initiatives Started

The Autumn meetings provided the opportunity to explore regulatory and technology trends, to discuss the status of ongoing projects and to prioritise new initiatives.

As a result the group are setting up project teams to:

- Develop and run a follow up of the Investigational Site Surveys conducted in 2004 and 2009.
- Pilot a process for conducting shared audits
- Progress new areas for operationalising Risk-Based Monitoring

Our thanks go to the member organisations whose energy and transparency enable us all to leverage shared knowledge and drive the development of innovative solutions.
