Once you’ve prepared your report using FDA eSubmitter, you can submit your document using FDA’s Electronic Submissions Gateway (ESG), an agency-wide entry point for all electronic submissions. The ESG authenticates and validates electronic submissions and routes it to CDRH. You will receive acknowledgement of receipt for your submission within minutes. To use the ESG, you must perform a number of preparatory steps to set up an account. Information on how to establish an account, the steps that have to be taken, and tutorials on various aspects of setting up and using the gateway may be found on the Electronic Submissions Gateway website. Please visit this website for instructions and to register as a trading partner for an initial test account. Upon completion of required activities and successful transmission of the test submission, your account will be promoted to a production account.

Alternatively, FDA eSubmitter can load your electronic submissions onto a CD and mailed to CDRH for processing. Once we process your electronic submission, CDRH will send an electronic acknowledgement letter to you via email, usually within a few days.

Although use of the FDA eSubmitter software is desired, if you must submit in paper form, soft copies are available in Adobe Portable Document Format (PDF) and/or Microsoft Word documents from the Radiation-Emitting Products homepage.

If you have any questions regarding the registration process or the Gateway in general, please contact the help desk as indicated on the Contact Us page.
