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.

In November 2018, we released a press release regarding the Chinese NMPA, noting that the agency selected our docuBridge and eValidator solution as an eCTD data management system. Now, the next step has been taken towards introducing eCTD submissions in China.
The CDE of the NMPA published the Chinese eCTD specification on March 1, 2019. Comments are appreciated until April 1, 2019. This marks an important milestone in China´s eCTD project, beginning the countdown to the final implementation of eCTD submissions in China.
Because of our involvement in this project, we can offer our customers around the world a head start in meeting China´s new eCTD submissions requirements. Please feel free to contact us or ERIS, our distributor for LORENZ e-regulatory affairs solutions in mainland China, regarding inquiries and further collaboration.
