eCTD, VET eSubmissions and NeeS Applications by M.P.C.A. International BV 

  • eCTD is a CTD or common technical document in electronic format. Abbreviated as eCTD.

The Common Technical Document (CTD) describes the organisation of modules, sections and documents to be used by an Applicant for a Marketing Authorisation for a medicinal product for human use agreed by the International Council for Harmonisation of Technical Requirements for Pharmaceuticals for Human Use (ICH).

The electronic Common technical Document (eCTD) allows for the electronic submission of the Common Technical Document (CTD) from applicant to regulator.

While the table of content is consistent with the harmonised CTD, the eCTD also provides a harmonised technical solution to implementing the CTD electronically for saleread this articlethe best replica watches in the worlds21 phone case. In other words, an eCTD is the submission of PDF documents, stored in the eCTD directory structure, accessed through the XML backbone and with the files integrity guaranteed by the MD5 Checksum.

The eCTD format is mandatory to be used for all submission types related to Marketing Authorisation for products within all EU procedures (i.e. Centralised, Decentralised and Mutual Recognition Procedures). In accordance with the eSubmission Roadmap, mandatory eCTD format is also stepwise introduced for National Procedures.

  • VET eSubmissions

The Veterinary Harmonisation Group (VHG) is a subgroup of the eSubmission expert group and is made up of representatives from National Competent Authorities, the EMA and Industry. Its objective is to develop and implement standards for the submission of electronic information in the context of European veterinary medicines approval procedures.

  • NeeS or Non eCTD electronic Submission

eCTD is mandatory however there are a small number of exceptions where NeeS submission is still possible.

Readability User Testing

Readability testing of Patient Information Leaflets (PIL) is also referred to as Readability User Testing (RUT). The report that is generated leads to provide a validated Module 1.3.4 in the e-CTD (Common Technical Document or EU registration file).

“Reading the information on a leaflet is not the same as understanding it.”
The most important part of our work is to ensure that people understand how to use a medicinal drug safely and correctly.

M.P.C.A. International BV has been involved with readability testing since the beginning of the requirement in November 2005 and has developed a validated webtool to facilitate the work and handle a databank of readers. Please search the web for

As soon as possible, of course, after the Corona pandemic, we will continue our RUT in the old way in which we again interview each reader in person.

“The package leaflet shall reflect the results of consultations with target patient groups to ensure that it is legible, clear and easy to use.”



In order to improve a regulated quality system, an audit process is required.

Competent authorities increasingly expect pharmaceutical companies to regularly audit their suppliers and service providers as well as their own internal organisation.

This involves both internal and external audits:

  • Internal audits, including supplier audits of the full range of products and services purchased, are tools that ensure continuous improvement to the daily core-business activities.
  • External audits, like customer audits or audits by the government, are tools to verify compliance or agreement between business processes on the one hand and procedures and regulations on the other.

M.P.C.A. International BV offers consultancy advice and application services and support in order to allow an audit to be carried out successfully. Every audit is followed by a detailed report, whereafter help is offered to establish a CAPA-plan. The follow-up activities enable you to maintain on the audit calendar of your business .
