The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) published notice of a new ANDA submissions guidance on September 24. The final guidance for industry titled, “ANDA Submissions – Content and Format” is intended to assist applicants in preparing abbreviated new drug applications (ANDAs) for submission to FDA. The primary purpose of this guidance is to help industry increase the quality and suitability of electronic common technical document (eCTD) submissions by identifying the information that an applicant should include to ensure that a complete, high-quality application is submitted to FDA.

With 2018 well underway, if you’re still not submitting in electronic Common Technical Document (eCTD) format in Europe, now is the time to transition.

Furthermore, at the end of this year, NeeS will be a thing of the past. On 10 March 2017, the European Heads of Medicines Agenices (HMA) announced that eCTD will be mandatory for all regulatory activities in National Procedures as of January 1, 2019.
