February 13-15: Forum

The last few years have shed light on the importance of operational efficiency of the management of regulatory information to ensure quality regulatory submission to health authorities. We have seen how the ability to perform at this level has allowed drug companies to bring therapeutics and vaccines to patients faster. At DIA’s Regulatory Submissions, Information, and Document Management (RSIDM) Forum, we will hear from industry and regulatory stakeholders working across the scope of regulatory information to examine current and evolving data standards and requirements and effective regulatory information management approaches to align related people, processes, and technology. The Forum presents four tracks: Regulatory Informatics Business, Regulatory Informatics Technology, Trial Master File (TMF) Inspection Readiness and Electronic Document Management, and Electronic Regulatory Submissions. Cross-track sessions provide the opportunity to discuss key connection points across major components of regulatory information, and plenary sessions featuring regulatory intelligence updates by FDA and other regulatory authorities are offered each day.

This Forum provides multiple opportunities for networking, knowledge sharing, and education for both business and technology-focused attendees.
