Partner Bio

The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) Electronic Submissions Gateway (ESG) is an Agency-wide solution for accepting electronic regulatory submissions. The FDA ESG enables the secure submission of regulatory information for review by the FDA.

The FDA ESG is the central transmission point for sending information electronically to the FDA. Within that context, the FDS ESG is a conduit along which transmissions travel to reach their final destination. It does not open or review submissions; it automatically routes them to the proper FDA Center or Office.
