Perfecting Your Company Core Data Sheets: A Guide for Authoring and Updating the CCDS – 2014 Edition

Also Available:

Composing a Company Core Data Sheet (CCDS) is one of the toughest challenges facing drugmakers today. Are YOUR CCDS-writing skills in need of a brush-up?

Here’s the help you need.

The CCDS is the prime reference document for every one of your drugs or biologics — the central document regulators and resellers rely on to label and manage the drug’s use.

Approved indications ... dosing requirements ... methods of administration ... concerns of special patient populations ... packaging and storage requirements and limitations ... incompatibilities and pharmacological properties — all must be in the CCDS, plus safety information.
And there’s more. You must update each CCDS to reflect the drug’s evolution. New indications, dosing changes, changes in handling procedures, safety concerns — all those factors and more must be added in on a regular basis.

What’s the best way to correctly handle these essential documents?  Make sure you’re up to speed with the authoritative report from FDAnews: Perfecting Your Company Core Data Sheets: A Guide for Authoring and Updating the CCDS - 2014.

In this newly updated 2014 edition there is an expanded section on company core safety information (CCSI), including:

  • Practical strategies for developing complete company core safety information
  • A roadmap for conducting safety review meetings and determining what to include and exclude in the CCSI
  • How to comply with the new requirements of the FDA’s investigational new drug safety reporting rules
  • How and when to include postmarketing and clinical trial data in ADR tables

In addition, this guide spells out how to draft and maintain a CCDS for each of your products — a start-to-finish explanation that includes:

  • Essential elements every CCDS must have
  • Updating and maintaining CCDSs — what’s working and what’s not
  • What safety data should and should not be included in your CCDS
  • Formatting the CCDS to satisfy international regulatory agencies and end-users
