R1 Working Definition

One Regulatory Activity, consisting of a collection of Packages (RPS1 Submission Units) (which may be grouped into Reviewable Units), to support one regulatory purpose. The purpose could be a notification of a change, or a request to approve a new product or change.

A Submission is may or may not be reviewed or approved

A Submission may belong to many Dossiers (RPS1 Applications).

ICH Equivalent

This varies, including Application, Submission and Sequence.



A compilation of the contents of one or more submission units that supports a specific regulatory purpose or decision.

For example, a request for approval to either market a product or to allow the applicant to start testing of a proposed product.

NOTE: In most cases, the compilation of the submission units is used to assess a product's quality, safety and effectiveness.

NOTE: Submissions are always associated with some regulatory action (or inaction). Each submission contains their own regulatory action. Submissions (e.g., initial marketing application, supplemental marketing application) would generally be comprised of multiple submissions units.

NOTE: Most typically the submission will be used to organize information based on a review clock. Receipt date from the regulatory authority is important for a submission.

NOTE: Submissions can be the "complete" submission, or some portion of a "reviewable unit". In this setting the kind of regulatory decision is different.
