The Trial Master File (TMF) is crucial for clinical trials, containing vital documents outlining the trial's conduct and results. Yet, transferring TMF between stakeholders faces challenges like different document formats, filing inconsistencies, security issues, and regulatory demands. Such complexities can impede collaboration, delay decision-making processes, and hinder the progression of clinical trials.
