When working with South African regulatory submissions, Submissions Publishing allows you to generate ZA v3.0 (eCTD DTD v2.1) compliant XMLs for submission to the South African Health Products Regulatory Authority (SAHPRA). Vault can validate these submissions in accordance with the ZA SAHPRA 2.1 Validation Criteria Version.

About Node Extensions

The South African eCTD specification supports node extensions in your submission.

Copying a Content Plan for ZA Submissions

When copying a content plan from another submission, Vault removes all country-specific data with the exception of the STF Content Plan Item record to support other regions that accept STFs. In order for the publishing process to work correctly for copied submissions, you must set the Continuous Publishing and Continuous Validation fields to Yes on all Content Plan Items.

Viewing & Managing Submission Administrative Information

Vault supports viewing Submission Administrative Information for ZA 1.0 and 2.1 DTDs. You can also manage Submission Administrative Information for ZA 2.1 DTDs.

In addition to the functionality described in Managing Submission Administrative Information, Vault groups some fields on South African submissions in the Submission Administrative Information viewer. Fields within the group appear indented. From the first field within a group, you can select Add Value from the field’s Actions menu to add a new field group. If you select Delete Value, Vault deletes the entire group.
