FDA ITACS webinars to learn more about the release

U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) plans to release its new Import Trade Auxiliary Communications System (ITACS) functionality.

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) plans to release its new Import Trade Auxiliary Communications System (ITACS) functionality on Monday, September 18, 2017. To provide information regarding this new functionality the FDA is conducting three opportunities to join a webinar to learn about the following:

  • An overview of current ITACS functionality
  • Background and overview of the new ITACS account management functionality
  • Creating an ITACS account
  • Retrieving Notices of FDA Action from ITACS
  • Managing ITACS account, users, and groups
  • Where to find ITACS and ITACS account management resources

Current functionality does not require an account, and allows the trade community to check the status of entries with FDA data, the ability to submit entry documentation electronically, the ability to electronically submit the location of goods availability, and the ability to check the estimated laboratory analysis completion dates for entries which have been sampled.

The new account functionality will enable the electronic distribution of Notices of FDA Action via email and as downloads from within ITACS. This will allow for faster electronic receipt of Notices of FDA Action and the elimination of mailed paper copies.

More information can be found on FDA’s ITACS for Industry web page.

The dates, times, and WebEx registration links are provided below. To register, go to the link associated to the session and enter name and email address. A confirmation email will be sent with instructions for how to join the session.
