Regulatory Management: Continuing Review No Longer Required


The question "Is Continuing Review required for this application?" displays on the bottom of the activities for Expedite, Record Expedited Decision, Full Committee, and Record Committee Decision, and on the associated Reviewer Checklists (Primary, Secondary, and Regulatory Reviewers). See the examples below. This question will display on submissions that are in the states of Expedited Review, Core Committee Staff Review, Validate Expedited Decision, and Full Committee.
