eCTD submissions in China: CDE is now soliciting opinions on eCTD submission guidelines

On September 17, 2019, the official website of the CDE of the Chinese NMPA began soliciting public opinions on the preliminary draft of eCTD submission guidelines, the supporting eCTD technical specifications, verification standards and other related documents.  The deadline for submitting opinions is October 17, 2019. Please provide your feedback before this closing date.

Previously, the draft eCTD specifications and validation criteria had been issued for advice in March 2019. This second round of public consultation signals that China is now in the final stage of eCTD preparation, and that the eCTD pilot phase will soon be launched.  This means that companies should be fully prepared to implement eCTD submissions, and possibly willing to participate in the pilot.
