What is CDISC?

January 2018

As part of TechnoSTAT’s one-stop-shop resource for data management and statistical services, TechnoSTAT is proud to provide complete state-of-the-art services to meet CDISC compliance.

CDISC (Clinical Data Interchange Consortium) was founded in 1997 in order to streamline collection and submission of both clinical and non-clinical data. The US FDA recommends using CDISC standards for electronic submissions of all clinical data and requires compliance with CDISC standards in drug and biologics submissions for all new clinical studies starting from 2017. Similar requirements by other regulatory agencies (e.g. EMA and PMDA) are expected in the near future.

TechnoSTAT offers CDISC services

TechnoSTAT has remained one step ahead of industry development, preparing clinical databases for electronic submission for over a decade, including application of CDISC standards long before it was a regulatory requirement. TechnoSTAT is a CDISC Registered Solutions Provider, certifying TechnoSTAT’s ability to provide assistance to organizations in implementing CDISC models.
