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 eClinical Forum REG Team has completed a significant update to the Members-Only 2023 release of the eCF Requirements for Electronic Data for Regulated Clinical Trials (commonly referred to as the “eCF Requirements”). This updated release incorporates extensive review and mapping of the EMA Guideline for Computerised Systems and Electronic Data in Clinical Research. This document is invaluable in determining if electronic records and systems are appropriate for use in regulated clinical trials.
eClinical Forum's two-day APAC Workshop was held in Kobe on 13 & 14-Nov-2023. The workshop was such a great success, thanks to generous and attentive hosting by Eli Lilly and thanks to all the participants from sponsors, investigator sites and system integrators who made contributions through thought-provoking presentations, intelligent comments/questions and friendly discussions. Thank you all and see you at next year's workshop!
We send out a brief monthly newsletter via email to all our active eCF members to keep them abreast of the activities of eCF that they can participate in. The more that participate, the better we are "A Network Powered by Peers". Click to see the most current newsletter.
eClinical Forum's Autumn Americas Workshop last week at Janssen in PA was terrific! It was so dynamic with participants from so many different eCF members companies presenting, discussing, networking and generally having a good time together. We had participants from Acadia, AiCure, Amgen, Astellas, Bayer, Boehringer Ingelheim, Bristol Myers Squibb, Clario, CSL Behring, Early Access Care, eClinical Solutions, GSK, J&J/Janssen, Medidata, Memorial Sloan Kettering, Merck & Co, Merck KGaA, Safira, and Uniphi. But, still we missed our members who could not attend ... Abbvie, Alexion, Ferring, Oracle, Novartis, Pfizer, Signant Health, and Veeva. I look forward to more collaborating over the winter and to be together in the Spring!
This is an eClinical Forum Technology Showcase. Our Technology Showcase sessions have been requested by eCF members to provide a demonstration of products or services.

After 23 years, Richard Perkins, our founder and chairman is retiring from eClinical Forum. We are so grateful for all of Richard’s guidance over the years, growing the eCF from a workshop with 13 participants in Nov 1999 to now a global organization with over 2300 active participants from 50 member companies (most member companies participating from several regions around the globe) and 10 global project teams. Richard will remain as a behind-the-scenes consultant during a transition period for the rest of 2023.
We had great fun toasting Richard and telling stories at both Blue Bell and Darmstadt workshops. Thanks you Richard for all you have done for us!! We will certainly miss you!!
The Archiving and Decommission Team is pleased to announce the public release of three white papers:
These white papers were 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.
What has changed?
The eClinical Forum is happy to announce the release of the "Investigator’s signature on electronic Case Report Forms (eCRFs), PR2.1"
About the Best Practice Document: There is increased scrutiny by regulatory agencies on the collection of investigator’s signatures as evidence of the overall oversight on the eCRF is reported to the sponsor. eClinical Forum PI Signature Working Group was formed in March 2021 to update the best practice document originally issued in 2017 by identifying best practices that are based on compliance to regulatory requirements and on risks such as reputation, credibility, legal liability of the data being used by the sponsor.
The Regulatory Expert Group is happy to announce the release of the English translation of the JPMA EDC Management Sheet v2.00. EDC Management Sheet is a tool by which Japan Pharmaceuticals and Medical Devices Agency (PMDA) ensures the computerized system used in clinical trials comply with relevant regulations and guidelines.This is an unofficial translation and made public for anyone to use. Please be advised that the original Japanese version should be used for any disputes.
