The ICSR eSubmitter software is a government-issued software provided in support of the Government Paperwork Elimination Act of 1998 (44 U.S.C. 3504). As users of the eSubmitter software, applicants and others required to report postmarketing adverse events are not required to perform their own file validation process. The purpose of the ICSR eSubmitter template is to facilitate the electronic submission of postmarketing vaccine safety reports using internationally adopted data standards to enhance regulatory review, exchange and dissemination of vaccine safety information. Applicants and others who choose to use the eSubmitter program for required postmarketing reporting of adverse events for human vaccine products must first download the eSubmitter software and then manually enter information into the ICSR template form to create each electronic ICSR or ICSR attachment for submission to FDA through the ESG for uploading to the VAERS database. Further information on submitting ICSRs and ICSR attachments using eSubmitter is included in the August 2015 Guidance (available at: http:// www.fda.gov/BiologicsBloodVaccines/ GuidanceCompliance RegulatoryInformation/Guidances/ Vaccines/default.htm), and on the CBER eSubmitter Web page referenced above.
