Trial Master File is a collection of the essential documents for a sponsor to
record how they have fulfilled their obligations for a clinical trial. The Code
of Federal Regulations states in 21 CFR 312.50 that, “Sponsors are responsible
for… ensuring that the investigation(s) is conducted in accordance with the
general investigational plan and protocols contained in the IND.” The European
Directive 2005/28/EC states that, “the trial master file shall consist of
essential documents, which enable both the conduct of a clinical trial and the
quality of the data produced to be evaluated.” ICH GCP E6 Guideline, Section
8.1 defines these essential documents as those that individually and
collectively permit evaluation of the conduct of a trial and the quality of the
data produced. These documents serve to demonstrate the compliance of the
investigator, sponsor, and monitor with the standards of GCP and with all
applicable regulatory requirements. They are all also eligible for inspection
by the regulatory authorities at any time during and after the study is
completed and submitted for product approval. This is the same regulation for
drugs, biologics and devices. It is, therefore, paramount that these documents
are filed in a way to make them immediately accessible for use by the study
team and for regulatory inspection. This module will provide some practical
solutions to meet these challenges.
Participants will review
the content that is required of a Trial Master File for drugs and devices for a
clinical trial, and will acquire a practical understanding of how these
documents provide evidence for the regulated activities of the investigator and
The activities of set-up,
maintenance, and quality assurance will be discussed, as well as common
deficiencies and challenges. The need for an effective Standard Operating
Procedure (SOP) will also be examined.
In today’s regulatory
environment, the files must be “audit ready” at all times. Regulatory
authorities may contact the sponsor and request a particular document be
provided to them for inspection. Therefore, the timely filing and organization
of these documents is of utmost importance. There needs to be a consistent
system employed such that documents can be located and provided for study team
use as well as regulatory inspection in a timely manner.
