eCTD Submission Services

eCTD Submission Services

Our scope of work includes electronic Common Technical Document (eCTD) publishing services. The most efficient path to regulatory approvals is to have your regulatory expert(s) also manage eCTD submissions. We work in close collaboration with your technical publishing team applying the strictest of regulatory affairs compliance to the publishing process and ensuring the most efficient electronic submission success and successful market access.

What is a Common Technical Document?

The CTD format originates from the International Conference on Harmonization (ICH) initiatives, in their effort to harmonize efficacy, safety and quality (chemistry and manufacturing) requirements globally for the registration of drugs (pharmaceuticals, biologicals, genetic therapies, etc.) for human use. This initiative includes standard information organization for new drug registration applications.


The CTD format is divided into five modules: Module 1 contains region-specific information and Modules 2–5 contain common clinical, nonclinical and quality information with some regional variations.

The Module 1 (regional) includes the following, amongst other information:

  • Administrative form
  • Product Monograph
  • Mock-up of Inner and Outer labels
  • Certified Product Information Document
  • Brand Name Analysis
  • Risk Management Plan
  • Etc.
