Companies engaged in the conduct of human clinical trials must adhere to specific government regulatory requirements. Certain documents, content, and images related to a clinical trial must be stored and maintained, and depending on the regulatory jurisdiction, this body of information may be stored in a trial master file (TMF). This webinar will help you understand in detail the new requirements for trial master files. The TMF includes all of the documentation that a sponsor must record to demonstrate that they have met their obligations for the conduct of a clinical trial. The Code of Federal Regulations states in 21 CFR 312.50: "Sponsors are responsible for ensuring that the investigation(s) is/are conducted following the general investigational plan and protocols contained in the IND."


  • Learn what content is required for a TMF for a clinical trial
  • Understand how the essential documents demonstrate the conduct of the regulated activities of the investigator and sponsor
  • Learn how to establish and maintain a well-organized TMF and provide quality assurance for the data included
  • Understand the importance of developing an effective Standard Operating Procedure (SOP) to support TMF activities
  • Learn the importance of developing a consistent system for locating TMF documents and preparing them for study team use or regulatory inspection
  • Learn about best practices and industry standards


You should attend this webinar if you are responsible for establishing or maintaining a TMF, or providing quality assurance for data included in the file. This webinar will also benefit those involved in the conduct of clinical trials, audit, and inspection of clinical trial study data and records and submission of filings to regulatory agencies that involve clinical trial data.
