PILOT- Form FDA 3331-Automated Pilot Program

FDA is launching a pilot program enabling manufacturers to electronically submit Field Alert Reports (FARs) to improve the speed and efficiency of reporting quality issues relating to the manufacture of FDA-approved drug products. The objective of this pilot program is to provide for simultaneous reporting to both FDA district offices and CDER, while determining the feasibility of transitioning from a PDF form to an electronic form. Currently, all FARs are submitted by firms to the Agency in PDF or hardcopy form. For more information please click on any of the below links
