This FDA guidance document is intended to aid sponsors, applicants and others making regulatory submissions to FDA in electronic format. The guidance details how FDA will allocate receipt dates to regulatory submissions to the CDER and CBER for drug products.


The guidance applies to the following submissions types:

  • Investigational new drug applications (INDs)
  • Premarket approval applications for drugs, including new drug applications (NDAs), abbreviated new drug applications (ANDAs), biologics license applications (BLAs), and amendments and supplements to these applications
  • Master files (MFs)
  • Post approval studies
  • Submissions related to products marketed without an approved application
  • Adverse event reports
  • Original submissions, amendments, supplements, post market reports, and all other regulatory submissions to these applications.

This guidance is not restricted to those submissions made using the electronic common technical document format. It applies to all these mentioned submission types if they contain information in either electronic or paper format, including hybrid submissions.

Areas Addressed in the Guidance

The guidance details the requirements for the following areas:

  • Regulatory distinction between Submission and Receipt
  • Decisions to receive or file an application for review
