  • The quarterly List of Authorized Generic Drugs includes the drug trade name, the brand company manufacturer, and the date the authorized generic drug entered the market.

  • You may request a pre-assigned number, ONLY when you are submitting a NEW eCTD ANDA. If you are converting an established ANDA to eCTD, you MUST use the original ANDA application number.
