WHO WE ARE
The eClinical Forum is a global network of peers. It provides a non‐competitive environment for innovation, learning and collaboration in clinical research.
The implementation of new solutions to share electronically the eCRF PDFs with sites have brought up new considerations and challenges to this process.
We would like everyone to share their experiences on how the process has been implemented, as well as the challenges experienced. This will be a group discussion on the recommendations to make this process as straight forward as possible for Sites and Sponsors, while complying with requirements.

Birds-of-a-Feather Round Table Discussion: New recommendations from EMA on the frequency of investigators’ signature collection on eCRF data
In July 2020, EMA released a new Q&A to provide further expectations on continuous oversight and frequency of investigators’ signature collection on eCRF data reported to the sponsor. Prior to filing a marketing authorization application, all eCRF data should be signed and dated. But also important data such as that related to reporting of SAEs, adjudication of important events and endpoint data, DSMB review, should be signed off in a timely manner. In addition, a timely review and sign-off of data that are entered directly into the CRF as source is particularly important.
The intent of this webinar is to identify if there are new challenges, and if any – to proceed with an update to the eCF best practices on investigator signatures document that was released in 2017.
MEMBERS...Materials from Webinar: “Practical Considerations when implementing eConsent"
This webinar introduces the eCF and EUCROF Implementation Practical Guide to eConsent which addresses key themes and hots topics and provides a view on the modernization of the clinical trials informed consenting process, including the current perception shift of eConsent adoption in light of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Position Paper: Trial Master File Archiving and the Decommissioning of Computerised Systems Used in Clinical Trials, PR1
The eClinical Forum is happy to announce the public release of a position paper titled “Decentralized TMF Archives and The Decommissioning Of Computerised Systems Used In Clinical Trials”. This position paper was written by a joint task force from EUCROF and the eClinical Forum, with representatives from other industry associations including ECRIN, the ePRO consortium, Medicines for Europe and the RQA.
ABOUT THE POSITION PAPER: Following the completion of a clinical trial, the essential documents that make up the TMF (Trial Master File) are retained and archived by the sponsor, the investigator and, in some cases, sub-contractors to the sponsor and/or investigator. The position paper highlights 11 key positions: seven positions concerning the archiving of the TMF and four positions concerning the archiving of the electronic data. These positions address areas where regulatory expectations are not always seen as being aligned with industry practices.

eCF Free Public Webinar: Requirements for Electronic Data for Regulated Clinical Trials, and associated Investigator Site eSource-Readiness Assessment
The eClinical Forum is pleased to offer a free public webinar – the same as was presented to the FDA CDER Health IT Board on 6-April-2021 – to provide information on our 2 free tools: The “eCF Requirements” (Requirements for electronic data for regulated clinical trials) and eSRA (Site eSource-Readiness Assessment).
REGISTRATION IS OPEN: eClinical Forum Virtual Spring Workshop, 4-18 May 2021
We are pleased to announce the details of our next Virtual Global Workshop on 4-18 May 2021. The virtual workshop will include presentation, discussion and working sessions and is open to participants from any member company in any region.
Our virtual workshops in 2020 were a great success and this one will be even better! We have made sure that sessions are as convenient as possible for the different timezones across the world by limiting the duration of sessions and offering more regional sessions. Learning from each other is what we do best and we will be introducing a number of ways to increase interactivity during the workshop (although nothing can replace the networking and comeraderie of an eCF face-to-face meeting!).
