The development safety update report (DSUR) proposed in this guidance is intended to be a common
standard for periodic reporting on drugs under development (including marketed drugs that are under
further study) among the ICH regions. U.S. and European Union (EU) regulators consider that the
DSUR, submitted annually, would meet national and regional requirements currently met by the U.S.
investigational new drug application (IND) annual report and the EU annual safety report,
respectively, and can therefore take the place of these existing reports. This guidance defines
the recommended content and format of a DSUR and provides an outline of points to be considered in
its preparation and submission.
