Timesavers: Why are files returned?
Incomplete submission:
• Have I included all the information discussed in the “New
submission/First review” section?
File needs to be split into separate files:
• Is there more than one regulatory audience?
• Is information accessed through different mediums (i.e.
website with emails, downloadable documents)?
• Are there different products discussed?
If in doubt, call us!
