Manage your INDs in eCTD format easily, quickly and with guaranteed compliance.

Investigational new drug or IND is an application to FDA (US Food and drug administration) by which a pharmaceutical company obtains a legal exemption to start human clinical trials and to ship an experimental drug across state lines (usually to clinical investigators) before a marketing application for the drug has been approved.

The IND Application must contain information in thee broad areas: Animal Pharmacology and Toxicology Studies; Manufacturing Information; Clinical Protocols and Investigator Information. Once the IND is submitted,the FDA reviews the IND for safety to assure that research subjects will not be subjected to unreasonable risk. 

IND submissions have been completely electronic since 5th May, 2018, which means that all necessary information must be submitted in eCTD format. This includes making sure that all your documents are submission-ready, you are able to create your IND submission as eCTD, and establishing your connection to the FDA via the Electronic Submissions Gateway (ESG). The INDs in eCTD format mandate subsequent submissions to these types of applications, including amendments, supplements, and reports, even if the original submission was filed before the requirements went into effect. 

Are you ready to submit your investigational new drug applications (INDs) in the eCTD format? Don´t risk many years of research with an unnecessary delay or refusal of your submission.

Be ready to submit your INDs in eCTD today with PhlexSubmission Express.

According to the European Directorate for the Quality of Medicines & HealthCare (EDQM) – the organisation responsible for the procedure of CEP –  in order to receive EDQM Certificate submissions for CEP must be in the eCTD format beginning the 1st of January 2020.

The mandate applies to:

  • Notifications, revisions, renewals & new applications
  • EDQM will no longer accept NeeS Submissions for notifications, revisions and renewal application
  • Exceptions applies to TSE only submissions, where PDF continues to be a standard format accepted.

About CEP submission

CEP or Certification of Suitability to the Monographs of the European Pharmacopoeia is the certification confirming  that pharmaceutical substances or active pharmaceutical ingredients (API) are produced according to the monographs of the European Parliament.

Scope of the CEP:

  • “Chemical” or herbal” CEP – substances described in monographs: active substances, excipients, herbal drugs/herbal preparations
  • “TSE” CEP – products with risk of TSE (SM, intermediates, reagents)

CEP application:

CEP application in eCTD format contains 3 modules:

  • Module 1 – Application form and a dossier in eCTD format written in one of two official languages of Council of Europe (preferably in English)
  • Module 2 – Quality Overall Summary
  • Module 3 – Baseline. Holds the information of previous submissions.
    • Mandatory for the following circumstances:
      • switch from a paper to an eCTD
      • switch from a PDF/NeeS to an eCTD
    • Recommended for a renewal, a revision or a notification

Upon receipt, the application is validated and listed for assessment. After assessment, the EDQM may send queries to the applicant. When they are resolved, the EDQM sends the applicant a CEP certificate, which is valid for 5 years from the date of first issue and valid indefinitely following the 5-year renewal.

CEP application is open to any manufacturer regardless of region they are based at. CEPs are accepted in 36 Member States of the European Pharmacopoeia Convention + EU, Canada, Australia, Singapore, South Africa, etc.

If a company which has been granted a certificate of suitability (EDQM’s CEP) may wish to apply for another CEP for the same substance, either when it is not possible to apply for a revision of the initial CEP or when the company wishes to have separate CEPs for different conditions of preparation or qualities, they can submit a new application as a “sister file”. This new application should fulfill the conditions listed in the guideline for sister files.
