  • Submission of electronic submissions to various regulatory authorities via gateways such as the European Medicines Agency (EMA) eSubmission Gateway, the Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency (MHRA) Gateway for the UK, the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) gateway, and Europe’s eSubmission Gateway
  • Document management by means of electronic document management systems

Regulatory-Publishing Tools

Regulatory-Publishing Tools

PLG’s regulatory experts use either an internal validated publishing solution or client tools to deliver compliant, timely submission components and valid electronic submissions. PLG and its clients can share and securely transfer files via either a secured Web portal or remote connections.

  • At PLG, the publishing platform can outsource the entire publishing process for a client by using either PLG’s internal tool—docuBridge from LORENZ—or clients’ tools such as InSight Publisher, eCTDmanager, eCTDXpress, and Ennov.
  • PLG uses several Adobe Acrobat plug-ins with specially designed pdf features to ensure that pdf files are compliant with eCTD standards. These include but are not limited to ISI ToolBox, Liquent SmartDesk, and EverMap.
