      Hi all,
      I am currently evaluating a CRO who will only commit to filing essential documents per GCP and will not file in the eTMF what they consider ‘outside documents’ (eg, vendor or IP documents). My organization does not have an internal eTMF.

      Has anyone come across this and how did you manage the documentation?

      Thank you!

      Hi Katie

      There are a number of slides that the MHRA have presented that support that section 8 is not sufficient. They may help – email me and I can send them.

      I have run into this issue myself and would like to see the MHRA slides on section 8 as well. Would it be possible to receive them?

      Thanks so much!

      The MHRA GCP Q&A Forum include a whole section of FAQs on TMF management which include this topic. I would also refer to the EMA/INS/GCP/856758/2018 Guideline on the content, management and archiving of the clinical trial master file (paper and//or electronic), which specifically states (3.5.1) that GCP 8 should not be used as a definitive checklist and is not an exhaustive list.
