The final rule for PADER Submission issued with a draft guidance for industry. US FDA will start accepting PADER submission in eCTD format from June 10, 2015.

Periodic Adverse Drug Experience Reports (PADERs) in the U.S. are submitted to update and evaluate the worldwide safety experience with a medicine at defined time points after approval. These reports provide summary information together with an evaluation of the benefit-risk profile of approved medicines in the light of new or changing post-approval information.

This evaluation is designed to help ascertain whether further investigations are necessary and whether changes should be made to the approval or to the medicine’s labeling.

In summary, the aim report is to

  • Report all the relevant new information from appropriate sources
  • Relate these data to patient exposure to the medicine
  • Summarize the medicine’s approval status in different countries and any significant variations related to safety
  • Create periodically the opportunity for an overall reevaluation of safety
  • Indicate whether changes should be made to an approved medicine’s label in order to optimize the use of the product

PADERs are submitted to the individual eCTD-based applications in PDF format. The PADER is provided as a single pdf file with proper bookmarks, table of contents and hyperlinks in the eCTD section, m5.3.6.
