Do you know where Kiribati is? Most of us didn’t before we heard about stranded seafarers in Hamburg, Germany, who are from the island republic along the equator.

Being stranded in a metropolis of millions of people sounds a little strange at first, but these seafarers earn their living through shipping. When the corona pandemic began, they were no longer allowed to leave their ship for safety reasons. After nine months on board their ship, they were finally allowed to step foot on land. But instead of being flown home, Kiribati refused their entry due to the pandemic, and they ended up stranded in Hamburg.

On March 10, 2021, the USFDA announced that they would begin to enforce the new eCTD validation checks on September 15, 2021. From then on, the USFDA could start rejecting submissions that do not conform with the Technical Rejection Criteria (TRC) formulated in the new eCTD validation criteria (v3.9) with error codes 1734, 1735, 1736, and 1789 for study data. In addition, the eCTD validation criteria for both CBER and CDER are starting to differ significantly from each other.

A passion for learning: part of the LORENZ DNA

This graduate-level course draws lecturers from institutions, government agencies, pharmaceutical companies and consulting firms. To this day, Witzel remains passionate about the program and still heads a course module, passing on his know-how to a new generation of regulatory affairs experts.

LORENZ customers at the forefront of e-submission creation

The release of the pilot project of LORENZ docuBridge in 2000 signalled the start of a whole new era in high-volume, high-performance submission creation and management and the term "submission management system" was introduced. The number of submissions to individual authorities soon skyrocketed into the thousands.

LORENZ is the vendor of choice for agencies and industry alike!

The implementation of electronic submissions in more and more regions also means that keeping an overview of all regional requirements is becoming more and more difficult.

In response to this, LORENZ developed the eValidator to help both industry and agencies follow the rules more easily, and to speed up the overall process. This solution was first introduced in 2006 to conduct automated checks to ensure that a submission technically complies with an agency's specified format(s). This both reduced the number of rejected submissions and sped up the processing of marketing authorizations.
