Navigation buttons for Modify the Application

At the top and bottom of each screen are 3 buttons:

  • Continue - Go to the next screen and continue modifying the application.
  • Review Changes - Returns you to the Review Screen page for final review before submission.
  • Cancel & Start Again - Returns to the Review Screen page. Any updates you have made to the application will be lost.

Modify application based on the notification received

If the application has been set to Return for Action, the FDA has determined that your application cannot be processed until you make certain corrections to the application. The system will display the application at the Review Screen Page with an Edit button next to each section. See Figure 5 below. Once you have updated the specific sections of your application, you will be able to resubmit the application. The system will send an email notification as a confirmation to the application update in addition to the online screen confirmation page.

Request additional certificates

This option allows you to request for an additional certificate or certificates for an existing application that has been approved by the FDA. The application status must be in a Printed status in order for an additional request. The system will allow you to modify Section 7 of an existing application. This is the section where you can enter additional certificates you would like to request. All other sections of the application will not be editable. In addition, you will not be able to request additional certificates if the application is more than six months old. See Figure 6 below.

Figure 6:

Select the "Edit" button for Section 7 to request for additional certificates.

Enter the number of additional certificates you are requesting, and then select “Continue.”

The system re-displays your application showing the new number of requested certificates. Click on “Submit” to request the additional certificates. The system will display a message that your application was successfully submitted.

Create an application based on the existing application

This option allows you to copy or “clone” any existing application (regardless of application status).

NOTE: Be sure to remember that each application is based on the Registration Number and PIN. You will NOT be able to edit the manufacturing name and address in section 1 of the application. Also, you will not be able to change the certificate type when cloning from an existing application. Therefore, it is important to know the facility (Registration Number and PIN) and certificate type for the application that you will be cloning.

Once you have identified and selected the application you wish to clone, the system will display the application with an Edit button next to each section as shown in Figure 5. Click on the “Edit” button next to the section you wish to modify. Make the necessary changes to each section (if necessary).

When you have updated all sections, click on the “Submit” button. The system will save your changes as a new application and provide you with a new Application Number. The system will provide an additional email notification confirmation with application details.
