What is a Dossier Submission?

In regulatory affairs, a dossier is an organized and comprehensive compilation of documents that are required in order to obtain market approval for a pharmaceutical product. These documents provide a detailed and necessary information regarding the product’s development, manufacturing, and quality control and must be submitted to regulatory authorities.

A dossier submission entails the compilation and submission of a collection of records and data to regulatory authorities in order to secure authorization for the commercialization and distribution of pharmaceutical products. Dossiers services include extensive information about the product’s effectiveness, safety, and quality which is necessary for drug approval. They are categorized into modules, each of which address a particular component of the pharmaceutical product’s development and lifecycle. For example, administrative information, quality, non-clinical, and clinical data. It is crucial to have a well-prepared and meticulously document dossier as regulatory authorities rely on dossier submission to take informed decisions on the approval and post-market surveillance of a pharmaceutical product. Theelectronic common technical document (eCTD) is among the most common forms of dossiers. Applications for drug registration are submitted to regulatory bodies by pharmaceutical companies using the eCTD as a digital format.
