Submissions to the US FDA’s
Electronic Drug Registration and Listing System
(eDRLS)

”Section 510 of the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act (FD&C Act) requires firms that
manufacture, prepare, propagate, compound, or process drugs in the U.S. or that are offered for
import into the U.S. to register with the FDA. These domestic and foreign firms must at the time of
registration, list all drugs manufactured, prepared, propagated, compounded, or processed for
commercial distribution in the U.S. Additionally, foreign establishments must identify a U.S. agent
and importers at the time of their registration.

Registration information must be renewed annually. The Food and Drug Administration Safety and
Innovation Act (FDASIA), signed into law on July 9, 2012, now requires drug firms to submit annual
establishment registrations in the period from October 1st to December 31st of each calendar
year. In addition, we remind you that at the time of annual registration, firms must list any drugs
not previously listed. The FDA no longer accepts drug establishment registration and drug listing
