Inspection Readiness/TMF Community of Practice

The MCC Inspection Readiness/TMF Community of Practice is comprised of MCC member organizations of various sizes that include Sponsors, CROs and Consultants.  Their aim is to share knowledge on inspections and best practices on Inspection Readiness and to explore the use of metrics, tools and checklists.  The MCC TMF Metrics Toolkit 2.0 contains metrics that can be used to assist with Inspection Readiness – measuring the timeliness of filing, document quality, TMF completeness and the effectiveness of an organization’s TMF process.

Meeting Schedule

The Community of Practice meets every other month focusing on specific topics each meeting.  Registration links are available on the Upcoming Meetings Webpage in the MCC Member Portal.
