Nonclinical Study Data Reviewers Guide
Welcome the Nonclinical Study Data Reviewers Guide project Wiki!
The nSDRG package has been developed by this team and is available for public use:
- Nonclinical Study Data Reviewers Guide - TEMPLATE
- Nonclinical SDRG Guide with recommendations on how to use the template
- Sample Nonclinical SDRG's developed by team members

The Nonclinical SDRG package has been developed to comply with the FDA's Study Data Technical Conformance Guide
Learn more about Nonclinical Topics Working Group of the PhUSE Computational Sciences Symposium, and its other projects @Nonclinical Topics Working Group.
This year's project is to:
- continually maintain the Nonclinical Study Data Reviewers Guide (nSDRG), based on FDA's Technical Conformance Guide
- provide guidance on "best practices" for creating nSDRG
- compare with anticipated potential requirements for Japanese regulatory submissions (new for 2017)
- maintain alignment with the cSDRG, maintained by Optimizing the Use of Data Standards Working Group for Clinical Studies
Overview and Scope
Preparation of a Study Data Reviewer’s Guide (SDRG) is recommended as an integral part of a CDISC standards-compliant study data submission. The challenge is to operationalize this new documentation requirement efficiently and effectively.
Challenges we seek to answer with this project:
- Provide a practical template for easy access and use
- Provide guidance document which describes expected content and options to guide nonclinical SDRG authors.
- Provide authors with examples, describing how to handle different data situations with SDRG content.
Things we expect to learn along the way:
- Exploration of ways to generate the nonclinical SDRG and who should do the job.
- The SDRG is expected to be useful by FDA reviewers. Can it also be useful for other nonclinical study stakeholders?
- Will the SDRG evolve as systems and processes gain expertise in the new SEND requirements for submission of nonclinical data?
Current Published nSDRG Package
The current package is available here, for public use. Study_Data_Reviewer's_Guide
The package has been reviewed through a PhUSE public deliverable review in 2015, and an FDA review in 2016. Comments from these reviews, as well as from the FDA "Fit for Use" SEND Pilot are being incorporated into the next version of the package. Stay tuned for update announcements.
