Introductory and Intermediate eCTD Trainings
Do you need to comply with the May 2018 electronic submission requirements for commercial INDs and Master Files?
The deadline is fast approaching for your company to migrate to electronic-only regulatory submissions based on the required ICH eCTD format.
