MUNICH/OTTOBRUNN, GERMANY--(Marketwire - November 29, 2010) - EXTEDO, a key eRegulatory Affairs solutions provider for life sciences firms, today announced that a new version of EURSvalidator, a validation tool for eCTD, NeeS, and eNTA can be downloaded for free at the new EXTEDO website. The new version includes validation rule sets for the FDA, Croatia and veterinary submissions. An enhanced reporting capability in the new version allows users to sort validation results.

EURSvalidator 1.5 is integrated into the EURS is Yours™ solution, which is being used by more than 25 regulatory authorities worldwide. Using EURSvalidator 1.5 in advance of submitting electronic submissions minimizes the risk of failing technical validation at the regulatory authorities.

EURSvalidator 1.5 supports the following formats:

  • CH eCTD (DTD version 1.0, version 1.0.1, and version 1.1)

  • EU eCTD (DTD version 1.2.1, version 1.3, and version 1.4)

  • EU NEES (Specification version 1.0)

  • HR eCTD (DTD version 1.4)
