Team Mission and Scope
The CDISC SEND team develops standards that support both the regulatory submission of nonclinical data as well as the operational use and exchange of nonclinical data throughout the industry.
This team is responsible for overall development and maintenance of the production SEND Implementation Guides (IGs) and their alignment with the SDTM.
SEND is one of the required standards for data submission to the FDA. Details on the requirements for the FDA are specified in the FDA’s Data Standards Catalog for IND, NDA, ANDA, and certain BLA submissions. For more information, please visit the FDA Guidance on Standardized Data.
The SEND deliverables are available to the public at: www.cdisc.org/SEND.

The SEND Team maintains representatives on the many CDISC cross-team initiatives. SEND also maintains 2 - 3 seats on the CDISC governance.
SEND also has a strong presence on the FDA/PhUSE Computational Sciences Symposium (CSS) (http://www.phuse.eu/css), including several leadership positions and significant overlap in membership with the Nonclinical Topics working group.
• Core Team membership comprises all SEND members, with well over one hundred active members currently.
• Work-Streams, when needed, are for all tasks that are not within the scope of the listed subteams and expected to have a clear start and end (ie, shorter term need). Work-streams are initiated by the CCB or SEND leadership.
• Leadership Mentors - To develop new leaders on the SEND team, an experienced SLTX member will co-lead or mentor a newer leader for any new Work-Streams. All Subteams and Work-streams are governed by the SLTX and all work is reviewed by the Core Team.
