06/2022 - DADI Project for Medicinal Products
The Digital Application Dataset Integration (DADI) Project aims to replace current PDF electronic application forms (eAF) with new web-based application forms, hosted on a dedicated portal.
The new web-forms will improve usability, reduce errors and facilitate data exchange (for example: automatic update of the article 57 database).
Timelines (see enclosed flowchart)
The first web-based application form - the variation form for human medicinal products - will be available for use from 10/2022 onwards. The use of this form is optional. A six month transition period is foreseen which means that from 04/2023 this form will become mandatory.
The aim is to switch all eAFs (initial marketing authorisations, variations for veterinary medicinal products and renewals) to web-based forms in the future.
Companies need to register with the EMA “IAM” portal to get access to the application forms (this is possible from June 2022 onwards). A level of access needs to be chosen per company user, and access rights need to be given to consultants.
The web based form will have a limited amount of free text fields and will use prepopulated standardized data from EMA databases/systems as source information. For example: only products which are registered in the article 57 database can be included in the web-based form.
Once the web-based form is completed, a human readable PDF document, in line with the Notice to Applicants, is generated, together with an xml file.
The PDF document + xml file needs to be included in the eCTD folder for submission.
