Notice of public workshop; request for comments.

The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is announcing a public workshop entitled: “Center for Veterinary Medicine (CVM) eSubmitter Workshop.” The purpose of the public workshop is to provide the regulated animal health industry that submits new animal drug applications to CVM's Office of New Animal Drug Evaluation (ONADE) access to the beta-release of the electronic submission tool (eSubmitter) developed by CVM as agreed to in the Animal Drug User Fee Amendments (ADUFA II) of 2008 (​ForIndustry/​UserFees/​AnimalDrugUserFeeActADUFA/​ucm044941.htm). The ONADE will be soliciting feedback on both the eSubmitter tool and its compatibility with the industry's current IT systems, as well as the questions asked within the tool.

This workshop will fulfill one of the 10 workshops agreed to in ADUFA II. The workshop will provide insight on the eSubmitter template development and its customization for the animal health industry as well as providing break-out sessions in which specific submissions will be built as part of the demonstration. Lastly, the ONADE will be seeking up to nine participating companies to work with CVM in testing the transmission of eSubmitter developed files through FDA's electronic submission gateway (ESG) and CVM's electronic submission system (ESS). Information about the workshop and availability of the eSubmitter tool can be found on FDA's eSubmitter Web site at​ForIndustry/​FDAeSubmitter/​default.htm.
