Provide us with the SEND study dataset generated by your CROs and have us check its reviewability using our SEND-ASSURE service.


For SEND data received from a CRO, our SEND-ASSURE service checks the sufficiency and reviewability of the SEND dataset and checks consistency against the Study Report. PointCross checks all the quantitative data and spot checks of the qualitative data against incidence counts.


SEND-ASSURE Deliverables
  • Discrepancies found between the SEND datasets and Study Report
  • Discrepancies identified in the SEND datasets against the FDA standards
  • Errors and warnings identified during validation using PointCross and Pinnacle21 validators
  • Suggestions to mediate any validation and SEND conformance issues identified by the PointCross data services team
  • Validation reports: SEND dataset and Define file validation reports from both PointCross and Pinnacle 21 Validators


The price can range from $2,000 for small studies up to $20,000 for large studies. SEND-ASSURE services are normally competed in 1-4 weeks with longer studies with complex trial designs taking up to 3-6 weeks. We will provide firm fixed price quotes based on a specified scope of work.

Generations of SEND 3.1 compliant datasets

The FDA is accepting and ready to review SEND IG 3.1 coded studies. According to the Federal Register notice, the transition date for support of version 3.1 of CDISC SEND IG is March 15, 2018. Although SEND IG version 3.1 is supported as of this Federal Register notice and sponsors or applicants are encouraged to begin using it, the new version will only be required in submissions for studies that start after March 15, 2019. The catalog will list March 15, 2019, as the “date requirement begins.” When multiple versions of an FDA-supported standard are listed in the catalog, sponsors or applicants can select a version to use.”


SEND 3.0 to 3.1 conversion services

With FDA set to review SEND 3.1 datasets, think about your strategy for how to deal with studies that have been coded for SEND 3.0 but are slated for submission only after the 2019 or 2020 dates. We have developed tools that can help convert your data retrospectively. Provide your SEND 3.0 datasets across to us and we can convert these into SEND 3.1 datasets through our Data Standardization services.
