The Regulatory industry is witnessing huge transformations. Some new regulations see the light of the day as we grow in the world of automation for regulatory compliance. Intervention of information technology for submission of periodic reports in pharmacovigilance is yet another required transformation.
History of PADER/PAER submission:
The Periodic adverse drug experience reports (PADER/PAER) submission was earlier performed on paper and alternatively, electronic submission was a convenient option i.e., earlier, it was voluntary to utilize the electronic submission method for submitting this periodic report. However, the recent mandate has discontinued the paper format and submissions are now allowed only via eCTD.
