In December 2022, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) published an updated version of its Validator Rules. Pinnacle 21 Principal Consultant Michael Beers delivered an overview of the differences between newly released version 1.6 and the now legacy March 2021 version 1.5.
P21 is proud to announce that support for CDISC Open Rules Engine (CORE) is now available in P21 Community 4.0. We have expanded CORE’s reference implementation to let you execute machine-readable CDISC Conformance Rules within the familiar P21 toolkit. This new CDISC Engine can run from the desktop GUI or command-line interface (CLI) on any platform in which you have already installed P21 Community.
On December 15th, 2021, the Japanese Pharmaceutical and Medical Devices Agency (PMDA) published its long-awaited update to the validation rules for SDTM, ADAM and Define.xml. PMDA Validation Rules 3.0 introduce additional standard conformance rules from CDISC, support for ADaM-IG 1.1, and many other changes.
At Pinnacle 21, we've got you covered. We have released support for these new rules in our latest validation engine PMDA 2010.2. And in this webinar, we've shared everything you need to know about PMDA Validation Rules 3.0.
Pinnacle 21 is happy to announce the latest Validation Engine for submissions to Japan's PMDA! 🇯🇵
P21 has spent many months developing this Engine with and for the PMDA, and now the industry—whether as users of P21 Community (P21C) or clients of P21 Enterprise (P21E)—can utilize it for expanded standards support, e.g., ADaMIG 1.1, in their eData submissions to the Japanese health agency.
P21 Validation Engine Improvements
The P21 Validation Engines are consistently updated and improved upon with insights from our Subject Matter Experts, consultations with regulatory agencies, and findings submitted by our users. Examples include:
AD1012 has been split into two rules: AD1012 and AD1012A. The former checks for custom variables and is a Warning; the later checks for standard variables and is an Error. These rules consider secondary variable names ending in *N or *C, for numeric or character equivalent, respectively.
AD0047 was producing problems for some variables but has already been fixed and patched for over a year.

Effective October 1st, 2020, China’s NMPA will accept CDISC submissions. To support this initiative, Pinnacle 21 has released a new Chinese-language validation engine, available now in both Enterprise and Community. This engine supports datasets with Chinese-encoded characters and displays rule messages and descriptions in Chinese translation.
These Data Standards Catalogs from the FDA and PMDA show the valid ADaM-IG versions for your submission’s date.
ADaM data are required by the FDA and PMDA, and accepted by China’s NMPA. Agencies often begin reviews with ADaM data validation, which helps them understand the analyses performed and reproduce results.
This is the first in a series of posts where we answer questions from our recent webinar, Exploring Common CDISC ADaM Conformance Findings. In this post, we focus on implementation recommendations.
In the regulatory review process, it's critical to have analysis data that comply with the CDISC ADaM standard. Both the FDA and PMDA require ADaM data, and as they begin reviews, they start with ADaM data validation. ADaM data help these agencies understand the analyses performed and reproduce the results for further validation.
In this webinar, Trevor Mankus covers the more commonly occurring validation rules and some potential reasons why they fired.
In August 2020, we released our new Pinnacle 21 validation engine “FDA (1907.2)” for preparing study data for FDA submissions. It includes the validation rules currently used by FDA’s DataFit, the agency’s implementation of Pinnacle 21 Enterprise.
The previous, outdated version of the validation rules is represented by our “FDA Legacy (1903.1)” engine. It will be available for the next few months until our next release. This window allows you to finalize your ongoing submission preparations.
