PharmaDoc LeafChecker


    • PharmaDoc LeafChecker checks whether created leaf files are compliant with eCTD standards.
    • The created leaf files will be checked for any problems that may arise when submitting them to the Pharmaceuticals and Medical Devices Agency (PMDA) on electronic Submission Gateway.
    • <Main items that are checked when submitting to PMDA on electronic Submission Gateway>
      • Whether there is JavaScript in the file
      • Whether there are JPEG 2000 compressed images
      • Whether there are bookmarks that exceed a certain size
    • The tool will identify the exact file and pages where deficiencies are located.
    • The tool allows you to check all leaf files in a folder, just by designating a folder.
    • Customers can create a configuration of checked items in different leaf files based on their needs.
      Thus, they can check the quality of leaf files, just by designating the names of checked items, even without understanding the details of the checked items.

PharmaDoc LeafChecker is currently used at 30 pharmaceutical companies and CROs (under annual basic support contracts).
