Upversioning support

In order to meet regulatory CDISC SDTM expectations for electronic submissions of study data, Uppsala Monitoring Centre has, together with the active involvement of WHODrug user representatives, launched new, improved dictionary formats: the B3- and C3-formats. UMC is also taking actions, again with valuable input from the user community, to facilitate the transition.

More UMC resources

UMC also offers to update company specific synonym lists to be compliant with the automated Drug Code changes in the B3/C3-formats. Ordinary changes related to ATC alterations and similar will not be handled by UMC unless separately agreed to. Please consider that the UMC assistance gives best effect if done prior to B3- or C3-format upversioning. If the synonym list is updated before the B3/C3-format is implemented, the number of manual changes are substantially reduced. Contact us at WHODrug@who-umc.org for more information.
