What is an Electronic Common Technical Document (eCTD)?

The Electronic Common Technical Document (eCTD) is the standard format for submitting applications, amendments, supplements, and reports to the FDA's Center for Biologics Evaluation and Research (CBER) and Center for Drug Evaluation and Research (CDER). This industry-standard format streamlines the submission process, making it easier for the FDA to review data, approve new drugs, and monitor drugs after they go on the market.

Not only does it benefit the FDA, but it also simplifies the process for submitters, as it is the same format used by drug regulatory agencies in other countries. This means that submitters can easily submit their materials electronically without having to worry about different formats for different agencies. So, whether you're a drug manufacturer or a regulatory agency, using eCTD is the way to go for a more efficient and effective submission process.

Electronic Submission Requirements

As a leading provider of software solutions for the pharmaceutical industry, Aquila Solutions understands the importance of complying with electronic submission requirements for various types of submissions:


Commercial Investigational New Drug (IND) Applications:

These applications are for products intended to be distributed commercially.


New Drug Applications (NDAs):

NDAs refer to the submission of a new drug for FDA approval.


Abbreviated New Drug Applications (ANDAs):

ANDAs are submitted for generic drug approvals.


Biologics License Applications (BLAs):

BLAs are submitted for the licensure of biological products.


All Subsequent Submissions:

This includes amendments, supplements, and reports related to the aforementioned applications, even if the original submission was made before the eCTD requirements came into effect.


Master Files (MFs):

This refers to submissions such as Drug Master Files (DMFs), which are considered to be submissions related to INDs, NDAs, ANDAs, or BLAs.
