The release of the Organisational Management Service (OMS) and Referential Management Service (RMS), the first components of EMA’s SPOR Master Data Management roadmap, is in sight. The User Acceptance Testing (UAT) is planned between the 27th of March and 7th of April, and the release is expected in May. EMA will provide a demonstration of the tools to the parties involved in the UAT on the 22nd of March.

Before the go-live of the systems, there are several activities you should do to prepare:
  • Decide who will have SuperUser rights in these systems and set up processes accordingly
  • Map your MAH, manufacturer and MA applicant data and decide on how to maintain these in OMS
  • Standardize free text package descriptions with the Containers list
  • Map the lists required for CESSP MAA
  • Prepare your xEVMPD processes to switch to OMS/RMS usage
  • Assess the impact on other regulatory processes, such as the eAF, Clinical Trial portal and EudraCT

An optimal implementation of OMS/RMS within a company will not only pave the way for IDMP, but will contribute to improve regulatory submissions and interdepartmental harmonization. If you require any assistance in the preparation, please contact us.
