eSubmission builder

Many dossiers are still not submitted in a harmonized electronic dossier format, often due to the lack of availability of a dossier management and publication tool. Authorities are about to individually develop web portals, leading to intransparent, labor-intensive and error-prone manual information collection as well as to an increasing lack of harmonization and possibility of data exchange within the regulatory world.

In order to further promote CADDY and GHSTS as vehicles for standardized dossier submission processes, the ECPA eSEG group is proud to present a standalone free-to-use eSubmission Builder software.

The following screenshots give you an impression of the functionality and look-and-feel of the software:
