Hi all – Looking for advice on filing location of IP Documents. The info that I could find tends to be a bit vague when it comes to zone 06; I’ve consulted some IP experts at my company, but they had a difficult time mapping to the Reference Model. If any one could provide suggested artifacts for the below (or other helpful docs), I’d greatly appreciate it:
– Lot Combination Packaging Summary
– Batch records, production orders, etc.
– MSDS, Testing, etc.

I would appreciate the opinion of others, but I think that many of the document types you mention aren’t literally part of the TMF. For example, if you consult MHRA GCP, p. 333, there is a diagram that shows IMP documentation as part of “Supporting documentation” and not part of the TMF.
That doesn’t mean it’s not inspectable, but that the expectation would not be that it is filed in a TMF structure.
I also see the following in an MHRA presentation on GCP.
•Essential documents (E6 section 8) can reside on a single system, but the MHRA extended expectations include access to material residing on different systems:
–GMP data (e.g. batch records) not needed by clinical staff
–Regulatory documentation (e.g. applications to MHRA)
Would be interesting to hear from those with inspection experience on this point.

I agree with Kathie in that these types of records are not usually managed within a TMF system. They can be requested during inspections – and the MHRA have explicitly stated that GMP batch records are part of the TMF – but are typically managed as part of GMP-regulated manufacturing records.
This is not a recommendation, but if you chose to file in the main TMF and therefore wanted to align them with an existing artifact rather than creating a new one, I suggest 06.02.03 might be the most appropriate….. based on the purpose/description of the artifact rather than the artifact name:
“Any certificate, license OR OTHER DOCUMENTATION that is required by a specific regulation to verify the quality, source, MANUFACTURE, ingredients or other aspect of investigational and/or control product.”
You could perhaps define sub-artifacts for production records / batch records under 06.02.03., though I would still prefer to see them managed outside the TMF system as GMP records.

Most IP documentation are site related documents related to the study trial. The documents you are speaking about or mainly kept in lab manuals. Unless specified by the sponsor to file in the central file section.

Thanks all for your responses.
@Kathy & @Eldin – Both of you state that there is not an expectation that these are included within the eTMF, but that they are inspectable – would then a regulatory body such as MHRA or EMA expect direct access to the system in which these documents are stored? – Furthermore would they expect that this system meets certain requirements (would an environment such as a restricted area SharePoint or Box environment be acceptable?)

Brad, I can’t lay my hands on anything in writing at this time pertaining to IP specifically, but Andy Fisher’s very detailed 2015 presentation mentions guided access to similar systems as being acceptable. I do not think that the HAs would want to have to train on more than a few systems (preferably one) and it’s my recollection that MHRA mentioned that systems storing data could be accessed with an expert to assist. Maybe someone else who attended MHRA’s TMF day a few years ago would have something in writing.
Pertaining to the requirements on storage, EMA says:
“The TMF should be managed securely at all times to ensure completeness and to prevent accidental or premature loss, unauthorised alteration or destruction of documents. Access to the TMF should be based on a role and permission description that is defined by the sponsor and/or investigator/institution.”
So the system of record (whether part of the core TMF or not) should be subject to these controls and should also be subject to validation/UAT. If you are transferring records electronically, that transfer should also be controlled/validated. If this is really the system of record for batch records or MSDS, one would expect that anyway.

Kathie nailed it!
The EMA TMF guidance document provide quite comprehensive requirements regarding electronic filing systems used for TMF content and those requirements apply to the primary eTMF and to supporting systems that also hold TMF content.
In any event, if IP-related records are held outside the eTMF, they would be subject to GMP requirements for computerized systems…. which mirror those for GCP since inspectors use a common GxP document for computerized systems.

We recently had an MHRA inspection with Andy Fisher as our lead inspector. We have approximately nine systems in which various documentation is housed that would be considered inspectable but not filed in our core eTMF system. We prepared access for all of these systems (in line with E6), but Andy and his team ended up only wanted direct access to our core system and guided access to the others.
We are still maintaining the option for direct access in the future as another inspector may have a different preference, but in my most recent experience, I can say that we ended up doing guided access for these disparate systems as needed.
