Electronic Submission of Biological Product Deviation Reports (eBPDR)

We encourage submitting Biological Product Deviation Reports electronically through the CBER eBPDR web application.

A valid Registration [FDA Establishment Identifier (FEI)] or CLIA Number is required to use this system. If you do not have a valid Registration Number or CLIA Number, you will be unable to access the electronic form. Please use the link to FDA’s FEI Search Portal at https://www.accessdata.fda.gov/scripts/feiportal. This portal will allow you to look up your own FEI number(s) and obtain your registration information.  There is no charge to create an account. If you have difficulty accessing your information via the portal, you may contact the registration staff below to obtain your firm’s information.
