During this public health emergency associated with the COVID-19 pandemic, the Office of Combination Products (OCP) is requesting applicants/sponsors to submit RFDs (requests for designation) and Pre-RFDs (pre-requests for designation) electronically. To do so, applicants/sponsors may send RFDs and Pre-RFDs to firstname.lastname@example.org and identify the submission type (“RFD” or “Pre-RFD” as applicable) in the subject line of the email. If a sponsor makes a paper submission of an RFD pursuant to 21 CFR Part 3, or makes a paper submission of a Pre-RFD, OCP requests applicants/sponsors to also notify our mailbox at email@example.com. Finally, in lieu of telephone inquiries, please send all other information requests to our mailbox at firstname.lastname@example.org.
