About The Content Of This Page:

This page contains the definitions of the terms listed in the current RPS R3 Submission Message (SM) document plus the terms proposed for inclusion in the glossary. Each entry is labeled as a 'glossary definition' or a 'submission message definition'; if the definition of an SM term has not been considered yet it is additionally labeled as 'UNREVIEWED'.

Every artifact in the RPS R3 model is represented by a term in SM. If there is no definition in SM for the term, 'SM definition is:' appears with no following text. Where there is a proposed change to the SM definition it appears after 'Proposed SM Definition:'.

Open questions, if any, appear at the end of the entry.

Please feel free to edit or add definitions for the terms, but please do not change the term numbering because I'll never be able to get the changes back into the database.

If there are other terms you think should be included in the glossary please add them, unnumbered, at the end after 141.

 Note Added 28 May 2011: 
 This page has been updated, entry by entry, to include he proposed changes, comments and questions
 distributed by Klaus Menges on May 6. These are boxed and marked KM.

1. agent

... Submission Message Definition -


SM definition is: If a person is the contact, it might be important to state which company they work for. For example, it might be important the person works for a CRO not the sponsor.

Glossary Definition (proposed): An Agent is an individual (a Person role in HL7) belonging to an Organization. The Agent class in the RPS message does not have any attributes, but provides a way of listing an Organization with a Person.

KM. Comment: An agent is an individual belonging to an organisation, e.g a CRO, which is acting 
on behalf of the sponsor or who is personally acting on behalf of the sponsor or who is as an 
employee of the sponsor authorised to and responsible for any communication between the applicant 
and the authority.

2. applicant

... Submission Message Definition - UNREVIEWED


SM definition is: The organization or entity that is responsible for the application.


2.1 applicant

Glossary Definition (proposed): An Applicant is contained within a Review object, and indicates the sponsor organization. The Applicant class in the RPS message does not have any attributes, but merely encloses an Organization element.

2.9. application

... Glossary Definition


Note that the term Application is not used here with the same meaning as given in the HL7 glossary. In RPS an Application is a collection of documents and metadata concerning a regulated product, both submitted to a regulatory authority, and returned by the regulator as responses. An Application is the highest level of content organization recognized in RPS. It is subdivided into submissions, which may themselves be further subdivided into reviewable units. An Application does not necessarily imply that something is being applied for, nor that it is approved, as it includes such topics as Investigational New Drugs and Master Files, which have no approval.


3. application

... Submission Message Definition


SM definition is: A request for approval to either market a product or to allow the applicant to start testing of a proposed product. Nevertheless, submission are for approvals. Applications organizes submissions (regulatory activities).


Proposed SM Definiton: An application is the highest level of organization of submission content. It is subdivided into submissions, which in turn may be subdivided into reviewable units.

 KM. Comment: Seem to be sufficient as the standard concerns all regulated products and therefore 
 several types of applications which may have slightly modified definitions in details.

4. application- id

... Submission Message Definition

SM definition is: id is a set and can be defined by many organizations for tracking purposes.

4.1 application- id

Glossary Definition (proposed): An Application must have at least one ID, consisting of a unique identifier -- a UUID or, preferably, an OID. A typical Application ID will use an OID mapped to a particular submission type at a regulatory authority, and use an extension to indicate the particular application number. An Application may have an additional ID generated by the applicant in cases where the ID has not yet been requested of the regulatory authority. If this is used, the applicant-generated ID must be maintained throughout the life of the Application, alongside the regulatory authority-supplied ID.

 KT: When the regulator's official id is not known (for the first or first few submission units)
 the Appliction could be submitted with status code set to NEW, and carrying some id supplied by
 the submitter. When the regulator's official id is assigned, that information might be
 communicated to the submitter out-of-band (i.e. not via RPS but by some other means like email)
 or in-band (i.e. via an RPS response message).
  
 With an official id the status code of the Application would be set to active, and the
 regulator's official id would be carried.  If a submitter's id had been previously assigned
 it could also be carried in the id field, and it would have to appear with the official id 
 in a regulator's in-band response communicating the assignment of an offical id.

5. application - code

... Submission Message Definition


SM definition is:

Glossary Definition (proposed): The Application Code indicates the type of application. This value will be from a controlled list created by the regulatory authority.


6. Application life cycle

... Glossary Definition


KM. Glossary Definition (proposed): The Application life cycle describes status changes of 
individual submission units and their content (including documents, components of documents,
ContextOfUse, Keywords and metadata except any IDs).

7. application – status code ?

... Submission Message Definition


SM definition is: Not currently in SM


Questions: 1. Do we need this to allow an application to be withdrawn (status = “null”)?

2. Couldn’t we use the status code value of “new” to indicate a provisional application without an official id, rather than mood code? When it is assigned an official id the object would carry the status of “active”

 KM. Comment: ad 1: An application can become withdrawn. If we do not have the status assigned 
 here, we need to have an automated way to nullify all submissions or submission units by 
 receiving a withdrawn of the entire application, e.g. product will no longer be marketed or 
 needs to be withdrawn caused by risk management decisions.
 
 Ad 2: Sounds reasonable. Alternatively, “submitted” may serve as an equivalent for “new”. 
 The same may work for submission or submission unit.

8. application reference

... Submission Message Definition


SM definition is: The application that is being referred to by the Application. This is typically used in situations such as Drug Master Files or Active Substance Master Files. The Application ID of the referenced application is used.

 KM. Question: Is this reference different from referencing to the originator in case of 
 generic products. The reference reason code may include this too, depending from implementation?

9. application reference - id

... Submission Message Definition


SM definition is: The identifier of the application that is being referenced.

10. application reference - reason code

... Submission Message Definition


SM definition is: The reason why this application is being referenced. This will be a controlled list defined by the regulatory authority.

11. author

... Submission Message Definition


SM definition is: The organization/authority that is doing the review. This is a 'connector' object between the Review and Territorial Authority which contains no attributes of its own, and merely encloses the Territorial Authority object in the XML message.

12. authority

... Submission Message Definition


SM definition is: The name of the organization or authority that is doing the review. It may contain a name and an ID. The Authority object is enclosed by the TerritorialAuthority.

13. call back contact

... Submission Message Definition -

SM definition is: This is an HL7 message object used to enclose the Contact Party objects. They are found in the submission (regulatory activity) and submission unit. There may be 0 to many contacts in each submission unit and submission, each with a single Contact Party.

 KM. Comment: We need to know at least 1 contact, normally we want to have just 1 contact. The 
 same is valued by sponsors: single point of contact. At regulators side this contact may change 
 during the procedure depending from the phase of assessment.

14. category event

... Submission Message Definition


SM definition is: The Category Event is a classification of a submission unit. For example, an amendment (submission unit.code) could be a 30 day waiver. The category event may have sub categories, each of which is a Category Event.

15. choice

... Submission Message Definition


SM definition is: In the RPS model, a "Choice" box is used to indicate that a submission unit pertains to either a Submission or a Reviewable unit. There is no choice object or data in the model or the message.

KM. Question: As a consequence both of them will be used alternatively depending from 
implementation or in parallel to the discretion of the tool or the authority concerned?

16. code set

... Glossary Definition


code set: see shared controlled vocabulary



17. code system

... Glossary Definition


code system: see shared controlled vocabulary



18. component1

... Submission Message Definition


Relationship Between: [submission unit <> context of use]


SM definition is: The ContextOfUse Act contains most of the supporting information to help further the granting of an application. Two ContextOfUse Acts with the same Code can be sorted by priorityNumber. When the applicant administratively changes the status of the submission to obsolete, the applicant would create a submission unit message with no context of use.


Proposed SM Definiton: The Component1 is used to indicate that ContextOfUse items are found within the Submission Unit. It contains a Priority Number indicating precedence of items.

  KM. Question: What happens if priority 1 becomes obsolete? Will priority 2 change to prio 1 
  or applies a rule “use the lowest prio# first”?

19. component 1 – priority number

... Submission Message Definition


SM definition is: The order of the context of use in an application.


Proposed SM Definiton: A value used to order (i.e. to sort) a context of use within the set of CoUs having the same code value and keywords in the same application. A real valued parameter allows new items to be interpolated anywhere in an existing list. The sort order between keyword, context of use code and priority will be subject to the implementation guide for each submission type, e.g. in Manufacturing, a Substance keyword may have the highest sort order, but within Nonclinical Studies, the Context of Use may have first sort sequence, then species, then priority number.


Question:Are keywords intended to have any role in as subheadings? Answer: Definition changed to include keywords.

KM. Question: Would that already sufficiently be given by the CoU?

20. component2

... Submission Message Definition


Relationship Between: [application <> document]


SM definition is: The document is first submitted in an application. Nevertheless, the document is considered universal. Meaning, the document can be associated to any context of use in any application.


Proposed SM Definiton: A Component2 object is used to show that each Document is enclosed by an Application. A document by default is associated with one application but it can be referenced from any context in any application known to the source and target databases.

 KM. Comment: The condition restricts the cross-referencing to same sponsor – same authority!

21. component3

... Submission Message Definition


Relationship Between: [document <> document]


SM definition is: Can reference a Document by Id only.


Proposed SM Definiton: The component3 is used to reference one or more documents within another document. A document instance may have components only if it has no text attribute referencing a file.

22. contact

... Submission Message Definition - UNREVIEWED


SM definition is: The contact can either be a person or an organization.

 KM. Question: Do we need both, contact and contact party. There is also the applicant. 
 Would it be sufficient to replace contact by applicant to avoid redundancy?

23. contact party

... Submission Message Definition - UNREVIEWED


SM definition is: A person or department to call if there are any questions.



24. context of use

 KM. proposed that the SM definintion, given in #30 below, be moved here to preceed 
 the glossary definition.

... Glossary Definition

A context of use associates one document with a position in a standardized table of contents defined by a controlled vocabulary (the code), plus optional Keywords. A context of use has a life cycle.

25. Context of use code

... Glossary Definition


The context of use code is a value taken from a shared controlled vocabulary representing the ordered headings of a standardized table of contents for a given kind of application. The code determines the heading under which the document is virtually filed. (A given document can be virtually filed in multiple locations by reference from different context of use instances.)



26. Context of use, derivation:

... Glossary Definition


A context of use is said to be derived from a document in that the attribute values and associated keywords used when processing it may be inherited from the document.



27. Context of use, multiple application

... Glossary Definition


A context of use instance applies in each reviewable unit and/or submission to which the submission unit of which it is a component pertains.



28. Context of use, multiple application exclusions

... Glossary Definition


The application of a context of use may be excluded from an identified submission(s) in a multiple application situation.



29. Context of use life cycle

... Glossary Definition

KM. Glossary Definition (proposed): The Context of use life cycle describes status changes of 
individual documents, components of documents, keywords and metadata except any IDs).

30. context of use

... Submission Message Definition


SM definition is: The ContextOfUse Act defines the use of the submitted document in the context of a submission unit. The document and its assignment to a particular code will be used to create a table of contents. This table of contents will be used by Regulatory Authorities to review an application. Based on regional guidance, a document can be submitted once and be referred to by other ContextOfUse's text attribute in the same submission unit, different submission unit for the same application, or different submission units in a different application. Codes for all ACTs will be different based on the Regulatory Authority and type of product. Regulatory authorities could have different codes than applicants.


Proposed SM Definiton: A context of use instance associates a document with a position in a pro forma table of contents defined by the controlled vocabulary specified in the code attribute. .



31. Context of use – id

... Submission Message Definition


SM definition is: The unique identifier that is used to refer to this act



32. Context of use – code

... Submission Message Definition


SM definition is: The code that specifies how the file is to be used within the submission process (e.g. Protocol, Summary Introduction). Note: ContextOfUse codes vary between different product types. If code is blank, the document code can be used.


Proposed SM Definiton: The code specifies the controlled vocabulary (i.e. code set) providing the pro-forma table of contents and the specific value to be used.Different controlled vocabularies may be used depending on the application type and regulator.


Question:How could a code for document type take the place of a code specifying the position in the overall application TOC?

 KM. Comment: A code could be defined by naming conventions and mimic a TOC, e.g. m32s35

33. Context of use - title

... Submission Message Definition


SM definition is: The title for the document in the associated assignment. If title is blank, the document title can be used.


Proposed SM Definiton: The context of use may have a title.

 KM. Proposed SM Definiton: The title for the position (heading) in the associated assignment. 
 If title is blank, the document title can be used.

34. Context of use – status code

... Submission Message Definition


SM definition is: See section "Document Identification, Revisions, and Addenda"


Question:In the case where a CoU is being dropped does the instance carrying the null status code have the same id as its predecessor or a new id? The first way seems to be the proper way under RIM rules, but it applies only to the specified object; there seems to be no defined way to end a sequence of versions.

 KM. Second question: Can a context of use been dropped or is it possible for documents,
 components, keywords only? Once a context of use has been created, also some content has been 
 submitted. The content need to be displayable for future revision even it became obsolete at 
 some time. Therefore, it seems to me that a CoU must remain but may have a status “obsolete” 
 and still uses the same id.

35. Context of use – set id

... Submission Message Definition


SM definition is: See section "Document Identification, Revisions, and Addenda"



36. Context of use – version number

... Submission Message Definition


SM definition is: See section "Document Identification, Revisions, and Addenda"



37. dedicated service delivery location

... Submission Message Definition - UNREVIEWED


SM definition is: The manufacturing site is based on the organization creating such a product. In other words, if a different organization buys a manufacturing site, it is possible that sites needs to be approved again.

 KM. Comment: The authorisation is always connected to specified production sites. Any change 
 will cause re-assessment.

38. derived from

... Submission Message Definition


Relationship Between: [context of use <> document reference]


SM definition is: The context of use is derived from the document. Meaning that the context of use specialized the document it reference or inherits all of the attributes of the document. For example, if the code or title value is not present in the context of use, the code or title will be inherited from the document.


Question:Are keywords inherited by type? Does a document with components also ‘inherit’ keywords from its components?

 KM. Comment: Assume a document without keywords assigned to itself should not be accepted as 
 valid. The components may provide different keywords and there will be no way to decide on the 
 correct one to chose. Inherit use should not be allowed (different from CoU).

39. device

... Submission Message Definition - UNREVIEWED


SM definition is:



40. Document

 KM. proposed that the SM definintion, given in #30 below, be moved here to preceed 
the glossary definition.

... Glossary Definition


A document is the unit of content managed by RPS. A document object is created once with a unique id and may be referenced from any number of other documents or context of uses . A document has a life cycle. A document may consist of either a reference to a single file, or to a set of additional documents.

41. Document, simple

... Glossary Definition


A simple document comprises exactly one file, which must accompany the RPS message in which the document object is submitted; the file is referenced by path and name in the document object. Each file accompanying an RPS message must be referenced from exactly one simple document object.



42. Document, compound

... Glossary Definition


A compound document comprises one or more simple and/or compound document, which are referenced by id as components.



43. Document life cycle

... Glossary Definition


KM. Glossary Definition (proposed): The Document life cycle describes status changes of a single 
document including components of that document, keywords and metadata except any IDs.

44. Document type

... Glossary Definition


Documents may be assigned a type from a shared controlled vocabulary. It is expected that a controlled vocabulary will be published by ICH for study documents; other regulators may develop controlled vocabularies for other purposes.



45. document

... Submission Message Definition


SM definition is: The ContextOfUse Act defines the use of the submitted document in the context of a submission unit. The document and its assignment to a particular code will be used to create a table of contents. This table of contents will be used by Regulatory Authorities to review an application. Based on regional guidance, a document can be submitted once and be referred to by other ContextOfUse's text attribute in the same submission unit, different submission unit for the same application, or different submission units in a different application. Either text or component is used, but not both.


Proposed SM Definiton: A document instance represents either a simple document, comprising exactly one file y means of a text attribute, or a compound document, comprising one or more simple and/or compound documents referenced as components.



46. Document – id

... Submission Message Definition


SM definition is: The unique identifier that is used to refer to this act



47. Document – code

... Submission Message Definition


SM definition is: The code that specifies how the file is to be used within the submission process (e.g. Protocol, Summary Introduction). Note: ContextOfUse codes vary between different product types. If code is blank, the document code can be used.


Proposed SM Definiton: A document may have a type assigned from a controlled vocabulary. It is expected that a controlled vocabulary of document types, corresponding to the file tags defined in the ICH study tagging specification, will be specified by ICH. Individual regulators may define other document types for other uses.



48. Document - title

... Submission Message Definition


SM definition is: The title for the document in the associated assignment. If title is blank, the document title can be used.


Proposed SM Definiton: A document may have a title.

 KM. Question: Not quite clear what the difference between “Document – title” and “document title”
 is.

49. Document - text

... Submission Message Definition


SM definition is: The location of the document.


Proposed SM Definiton: The text attribute is present only if the document instance represents a simple document, in which case the text attribute carries information about the file:- reference URL (path to the file including the file name), plus optionally, - language- integrity check- integrity check algorithm



50. Document – status code

... Submission Message Definition


SM definition is: See section "Document Identification, Revisions, and Addenda"



51. Document – set id

... Submission Message Definition


SM definition is: See section "Document Identification, Revisions, and Addenda"



52. Document – version number

... Submission Message Definition


SM definition is: See section "Document Identification, Revisions, and Addenda"



53. document reference

... Submission Message Definition


SM definition is: A document can be used many times. Each time the document is used, that document has a different context of use. Accordingly, each context of use must refer to one document.


Proposed SM Definiton: A context of use must reference exactly one document.



54. file

... Submission Message Definition


SM definition is:

Proposed SM definition: A file is a block of arbitrary information, or resource for storing information, which is available to a computer program and is usually based on some kind of durable storage.[1]

 KM. SM definition (proposed) is: The file contains the text, listings, figures or any other 
 content using file formats as specified by ICH or other regulators in the area of a defined 
 product type. Via a reference URL (path to the file including the file name), plus optionally,
 - language- integrity check- integrity check algorithm the content becomes displayable.

55. Filing Order

... Glossary Definition


Documents are virtually filed under specified headings in a standardized table of contents for the particular application type. (By virtually filed, we mean displayed under those headings by the software tools used to access and manage the document databases). The heading is specified by a context of use that also references the document. Since more than one document may file under the same heading, a secondary sorting order may be specified by, first type and value of any keywords associated with the document or context of use (?), and then by a numerical position value associated with the context of use. The numerical position is specified as a positive real number so that a context of use may ‘insert’ a document in an existing filing sequence under a heading.



56. holder

... Submission Message Definition - UNREVIEWED


SM definition is: The sponsor is the requesting a review.

Proposed SM Definition: The holder is an HL7 object used to connect an Application or Review to an Applicant object, referring to the product sponsor requesting a review or approval.

KM. Comment: Sponsor and applicant serving for the same role. Can we align the terms used?

57. information recipient

... Submission Message Definition - UNREVIEWED


SM definition is: An application can be targeted to only one regulatory authority.

Proposed SM definition: The Information Recipient is an HL7 object used to optionally connect an Application or Review with a Territorial Authority.

KM. Note: The content wise identical application can be submitted to many regulatory authorities
at the same time, but metadata will address that the application needs to be reviewed by more than 
one authority depending from type of procedure, e.g. decentralised procedure in Europe.

Comment: Currently agencies receive copies of the submission and therefore metadata could also be
individualised (which is not foreseen by law). But in future we will have a common submission 
platform and the access to the submission will be managed be metadata like the EU module 1 envelope.

58. ingredient

... Submission Message Definition - UNREVIEWED


SM definition is: An ingredient is a substance that forms part of a product.

KM. The name of the ingredients needs to be picked from a controlled vocabulary provided by 
regulators / ICH / EMA according to ISO standard 11238.

59. Keyword

... Glossary Definition

A keyword is a name-value pair, where the name identifies the type of keyword, and the value is a text string to be used on a document or context of use to which that keyword is applied. Keywords are applied to (i.e. used on) document and content of use instances as additional metadata to modify their retrieval, ordering (?) and display.

 KM. Proposed merging this with #60 following.

60. keyword

... Submission Message Definition


SM definition is: A Keyword is a reference to the KeywordDefinition Act. One or more Keywords can be associated to documentation.


Proposed SM Definiton: A keyword instance represents the association of a keyword with a document or with a context of use. A keyword instance either invokes a keyword type and value directly from a controlled vocabulary or it references by id a keyword type and value defined in and for an application.

 KT. New Proposed SM Definition.  A keyword instance associates a keyord (name,value pair) with. 
 a document or context of use. The particular keyword name and value is given by the code element
 in the keyword instance.


Question:When the keyword is attached to a context of use (or inherited from the derived document) are tools expected to ensure that the keyword id is defined for each application to which the CoU pertains?

 KM. Question 2: Would be possible that the keyword id need to be different in case of multiple 
 use across applications. I assume it will be possible.Then the answer to the question above is Yes.

Question 3: How can a sponsor control the presentation order of a particular keyword? e.g. study sequence, manufacturers, substances, species. The 'priority' value determines the order within all other sorting, but there is currently no means of specifying the priority of a list.

61. keyword – id

... Submission Message Definition


SM definition is: Reference to the KeywordDefinition.id. This field should only be used if there is not coding system equivalent


Proposed SM Definiton: An id attribute is present in a keyword instance only when it is intended to reference a keyword name and value defined in and for an application.

 KT. This can be dropped if we always use the code element to identify a keyword, even when it
 is defined by the submitter for a specific application. See Keyword Definition for details.

62. keyword – code

... Submission Message Definition


SM definition is: Used if the keyword is from a coding system not from keyword definition.


Proposed SM Definiton: A code attribute is present in a keyword instance only when it is intended to invoke a keyword type and value directly from a controlled vocabulary.

 KT. New Proposed SM Defintion: the code attribute is used to identify the particular keyword. 
 It identifies the code system, code and display name of the attribute.

63. keyword - status code

... Submission Message Definition


SM definition is: Being able to remove a keyword for a context of use.


Question:Shouldn’t this be removed because it serves no purpose? A keyword used on a document or a context of use cannot be updated without submitting a new version of the document or context of use including its whole set of associated keywords, because it is not possible to refer to a keyword instance that directly applies a keyword name and value from a code set, since it carries no id.

KM. Comment: Sounds reasonable as the keyword “status” is “inheritly” connected to the status of 
the document or the CoU.

64. Keyword application

... Glossary Definition


Keywords are applied to (i.e. used on) document or context of use instances by associating either a keyword definition by reference to its id, or a keyword name and value directly from a controlled vocabulary by using the appropriate code.



65. Keyword application life cycle

... Glossary Definition


When a keyword used on a document or context of use is to be replaced or dropped then a new version of the document or context of use instance is submitted, including the whole new set of keywords applied to that instance.

KM. Comment: Can we Have a life cycle without a status code? To my understanding the same applies 
as for #63.

66. Keyword application sources

... Glossary Definition


Keywords may be invoked directly from a shared controlled vocabulary, or may be defined in and for an application. Keywords that are defined in and for an application are subject to a managed life cycle.



67. keyword definition

... Glossary Definition


A keyword may be defined in and for an application by specifying its type from a controlled vocabulary and assigning it a text string value.

 KM. Proposed merging this with #68 below.

68. keyword definition

... Submission Message Definition


SM definition is: A keyword definition contains name value pairs that are used within the context of an application. Each keyword is an item of information that provides context for the document(s). Keywords are used only to further define the context of documents, and the Keywords, by themselves, have no intrinsic value. Since one of the goals of this message was to create one message structure that can be used for all regulated product types, we decided not model individual keywords as classes and relate these classes to specific document types.



69. keyword definition – id

... Submission Message Definition


SM definition is: The unique identifier that is used to refer to this act


Proposed SM Definiton: A unique id for this keyword definition.



70. keyword definition – code

... Submission Message Definition


SM definition is: The type of Keyword (e.g., Manufacture, Dosage Form, Route of Admin)


Proposed SM Definiton: A code attribute is required to specify the keyword (type) name from a controlled vocabulary.



71. keyword definition - status code

... Submission Message Definition


SM definition is: Active or nullified.


Question:In the case where a keyword is being dropped, does the instance carrying the null status code have the same id as its predecessor or a new id? The first way seems to be the proper way under RIM rules, but it applies only to the specified object; there seems to be no defined way to end a sequence of versions.

 KM. Comment: Same as above

72. keyword definition – value

... Submission Message Definition


SM definition is: The value of the KeywordDefination.code


Proposed SM Definiton: A value (text string) is required to complete the keyword definition, unless the keyword definition instance has a null status code.

 KT. New Proposed SM Definition: the value of a keyword definition object is a DSET of entries of 
 data type CD (concept descriptor), which includes the following:
 code system id: an OID specifiying the code system
 code system name: 
 code system version:
 code: code value for the particular keyword (would also have to identify the type in some way)
 display name: the text value of the keyword
 
 Therefore a keyword definition object can contain an entire code set of user-defined keywords
 of a particular type. Any changes would be communicated by sending an updated keyword definition
 object, replacing its precessor, and carrying a new version of the code set.

73. Keyword definition life cycle:

... Glossary Definition


Once a keyword has been defined in and for an application, it may be replaced (i.e. assigned a new type and/or value) or it may dropped entirely from further use. In either case a new keyword definition is submitted with a reference to the keyword definition being replaced.

 KM. Comment same as above.

74. links

... Submission Message Definition


SM definition is: This allows two link correspondences together to make a threaded communication.

Proposed SM definition is: This permits a ContextOfUse to be related to other ContextOfUse items.

Question:What does this mean and how is it supposed to work? Answer: I thought we ditched threaded communications. However, this may be useful in responses to permit a question to point to a document, or a revised file to point to a question. If this is done, though, it probably needs a reason code.

 KM. Comment: Correspondence is performed outside RPS. In daily life a lot of communication is 
 exchanged in addition to “formal” messages. If this is necessary to be archived it would make 
 sense to keep this exchange together as a thread. But where is the link to the RPS messaging standard?

75. manufactured product

... Submission Message Definition -

SM definition is: The product that is the subject of the review.

 KM. SM definition (proposed): The manufactured product that is the subject of the application and 
 to which a regulatory activity is started by sending a submission unit and specified by assigned 
 manufacturing sites.

76. mode

... Submission Message Definition -

SM definition is: The high-level handling of the information submitted as part of variation(s) and extension applications. The mode should only be used in variation or line extension regulatory activities and must be included in every sequence of that activity. The following are the valid modes: a single regulatory activity (e.g. a Type II variation), a grouped activity (e.g. several variations grouped into a single submission or a periodic report of type IA variations applicable to one or more marketing authorisations), and an activity subject to a worksharing agreement (e.g. a Type II variation applicable to more than one marketing authorisation)

 KM. SM definition proposed: In some regions or for some regulators an additional high-level
 aggregation of submissions across applications is needed. “Mode” offers the high-level handling
 of the information submitted e.g. as part of variation(s) and extension applications in the EU.
 For the EU, the mode should only be used in variation or line extension regulatory activities and 
 must be included in every sequence of that activity. The following are the valid modes: a single 
 regulatory activity (e.g. a Type II variation), a grouped activity (e.g. several variations 
 grouped into a single submission or a periodic report of type IA variations applicable to one or 
 more marketing authorisations), and an activity subject to a worksharing agreement (e.g. a Type
 II variation applicable to more than one marketing authorisation)

Proposed SM Definiton: Relates a reviewable unit to a submission.

 KM. Proposed changing the names of the SM entries for pertinent information (#79-85 below) to
 include the relationship information.
 
 KT: this is not possible because these names are generated by the HL7 tool that creates the text
 form (Submission Message) from the model.

80. pertinent information2

... Submission Message Definition


Relationship Between: [submission unit choice <> either reviewable unit or submission]


SM definition is: A submission unit either pertains to one or more Submissions or pertains to one or more Reviewable Units. For example, an annual report submission unit can apply to multiple applications. Therefore, the applicant will create one submission unit and associate that unit to multiple submissions.

... Submission Message Definition


SM definition is: PreviousKeywordDefinition is used to replace an existing KeywordDefination. Once a KeywordDefinition is replaces, that KeywordDefination can no longer be associated with a context of use.


Proposed SM Definiton: PreviousKeywordDefinition is used to replace an existing KeywordDefination. Once a KeywordDefinition is replaced, that KeywordDefination can no longer be associated with a document or context of use.

KM. Comment: Do we really need this item as it seems that we can skip keyword status etc. and the
definition requires always to submit new content together with a change of keywords (status). In
of displaying the former status of a dossier, the previous keyword will be viewable anyway. This
item serves not for lifecycle purpose of the keyword vocabulary, or am I wrong?

88. primary information recipient

... Submission Message Definition -


SM definition is: A context of use can be targeted to only one regulatory authority.

Proposed SM definition: The Primary Information Recipient is used to relate a context of use to a Territorial Authority, used for limiting who should review a Context of Use.

Proposed definition: The Related Context of Use provides a relationship between a ContextOfUse and ContextOfUse that was recorded previously. See section "Document Identification, Revisions, and Addenda".

Question:Now that we have a robust independent document construct why do we need this? We could do all content life cycle tracking on the document, and leave the sequence of versions in a set as the track of a CoU life cycle.

Answer: The Related Context of Use is used to indicate replacement within a submission. Merely changing the document doesn't tell the submission that it's current. You need both: A document is updated, then a submission uses it. For instance, let's say that the tablets and gel-caps use a common manufacturing method, then it's found that the gel caps can use a different set of steps, or an ingredient is provided by a different vendor closer to the plant. A new document is created, perhaps as a sub-document of a larger document, but until a Submission Unit says that it is using that new document, it isn't part of the submission. That Context of Use needs to say, "I'm replacing the old one." But the old one may still be valid for other submissions.

 KM. Comment: Deletion is welcomed.
 KT: since we have decided that we want explict version replacement on all acts of 
 class code = DOC, then this has to stay.

95. related context of use - id

... Submission Message Definition


SM definition is:

... Submission Message Definition


SM definition is:


Question:Isn’t this is redundant? (Yes I know that CDA doe it this way but our documents are not the same as theirs so I don’t see why we should adopt the same conventions, especially when they’re problematic.)

 KM. Comment: Do we need this in case a related document becomes a new relationship assigned but
 all documents still exist, only the relationship is new???? But may be it is just yes and no, so
 the relation will not be under version control.

100. replacement of

... Submission Message Definition


Relationship Between: [keyword definition <> previous keyword defintion]


SM definition is: One can only replace another KeywordDefinition. When the KeywordDefinition is replaced, that KeywordDefinition is obsolete; therefore, that KeywordDefinition cannot be used in a context of use.

Proposed SM Definition: The Replacement Of object is used to connect a Previous Keyword Definition with the Keyword Definition that contains it.

 KM. Comment: It sounds still like maintenance activity on a controlled vocabulary. Is that
 needed in RPS??
