FDA’s Center for Veterinary Medicine Announces Second eSubmitter Webinar in Ongoing Series

August 7, 2018

On August 22, 2018, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration’s Center for Veterinary Medicine (CVM) will host the second of a three-part webinar series to provide information on how to use eSubmitter, CVM’s electronic submission tool for the animal drug approval process.

CVM is providing this webinar series because, starting on October 1, 2018, sponsors will be required to use eSubmitter to submit all animal drug applications to the agency. This second session will assist and educate sponsors on how to use eSubmitter to create various types of animal drug application submissions. The first webinar in the series walked users through the FDA Electronic Submission Gateway (ESG) and CVM Electronic Submission System (ESS) registration processes. The last session, to be held in September, will provide additional opportunity for questions and answers.

The webinar will be live-cast and a recording will be available on the FDA website shortly after the presentation date. Registration prior to the webinar is not required. The webinar will be open to the first 500 participants.

The webinar will be held on the Adobe Connect platform. CVM strongly encourages attendees to test their computers well in advance of the webinar to ensure their computer and network connections are properly configured.
