New to CDISC - TMF Professional

The Trial Master File Community joined CDISC in April 2022. The key deliverable of this initiative is the Trial Master File Reference Model, which provides standardized taxonomy and metadata and outlines a reference definition of TMF content using standard nomenclature.

The TMF Reference Model is maintained by a team of industry volunteers, under the auspices of CDISC. Activities conducted by the project progress through a number of sub-groups, including maintenance and development of the Reference Model itself.

If you are interested in actively participating in this initiative and are prepared to contribute on a regular basis, you can volunteer on the CDISC website.

The TMF Initiative hosts General Meetings every quarter, the diary can be found here.

There is also an active Forum where questions can be posted and the community will respond. It is not a moderated Forum, and you need to register here to be part of the Forum

The TMF Reference Model LinkedIn Group is an active place for discussions and announcements. It is strictly monitored according to the following rules:

  • No job postings
  • No recruitment
  • No company advertising, which includes company-specific ‘advertorial’ postings and promotions embedded in email signatures
  • No vendor-specific conferences, webinars, or blog advertising, including links to these
  • No advertising in responses to discussions
