This guidance provides recommendations to help sponsors comply with the expedited safety reporting requirements for human drug and biological products that are being investigated (1) under an investigational new drug application (IND) (21 CFR 312.32) or (2) as part of a bioavailability (BA) or bioequivalence (BE) study that is exempt from the IND requirements (21 CFR 312.64(b) and 320.31(d)(3)).
