navigating through new clinical trials regulations

(EU) No. 536/2014: the impact of the new clinical trials regulation

Are you prepared to navigate the evolving regulatory requirements of the Clinical Trials Regulation (EU) No 536/2014? Have you aligned your human capital, technologies, and processes to ensure overall compliance? While this harmonized regulation will help gain efficiencies, it will also require significant changes to how and when you prepare, submit, and report your applications during this phased implementation period.

How CQ fluency is prepared to partner with you:

we build workflows that support stricter deadlines

• We centralize, securely and efficiently submit your multi-language translation requests through one customizable portal and adapt as necessary as your needs grow or change.

• We provide more than one layer of trial IDs to track and report while adhering to your compliance requirements.

• We build dashboards to run reports based on several datapoints to gain visibility into project/trial status.

• We customize your clinical translation process with our ISO 9001 and ISO 17100 certified workflow procedures. Our processes are in full compliance with the ISPOR Principles of Good Practice for Translation and Cultural Adaptation of PROs and ISOQOL guidelines.

we partner with you during the initial assessment phase

• We help connect the dots when submitting documents for the application dossier.

• We know it’s important to start the localization/translation discussion upstream when the source language master documents are being developed because new regulations often provide less flexibility submitting substantial modifications.

we automate and optimize the process to your benefit

• We map out the steps to safely implement automation at the appropriate times and we advise of the potential benefits and risks.

• We optimize human touch points so your team spends less time moving files around and spends more time making key decisions on project success in terms of quality, timeliness, and budget.

• We integrate your existing platforms with our customized CQportal to simplify production, increase transparency, and improve security, while ensuring there is a consistent information flow of data into a centralized Translation Memory System.

we help prepare plain-language summaries (PLSs)

• We understand that simplifying copy cannot be misleading.

• We operate with standard operating procedures (SOPs) for handling and processing the PLSs based on your requirements.

• We ensure dialects and cultural cues are considered, provide back-translations and in-country reviews.

• We also leverage tools to evaluate reading level such as multi-lingual glossaries of critical words to flag.

cultural consulting

we offer consulting services on multi-lingual clinical labeling

• We offer regulatory consulting services to advise you on to condense copy by abbreviating, rephrasing and/or using acronyms.

we set up translation workflows to meet urgent reporting timelines for SAEs/SUSARs/CIOMS/ within 24–72 hours

• For a leading pharmaceutical client, we developed an automated process to rapidly translate flagged articles from global medical journals. Our automation solution sifted through extensive amounts of multilingual data to identify any potential adverse events. Once flagged, these articles were expedited to SME linguists for translation. For life-threatening/critical content, we translated within two business days or four calendar days (whichever was shorter), and all other articles were translated within three business days or five calendar days (whichever was shorter).

• We can develop custom glossaries of key words across multiple languages and build automated workflows to rapidly identify and flag key words.
