These FAQs have been updated to reflect the changes, and to clarify existing requirements. XML, or Extensible Markup Language, is a markup language that defines rules for structuring documents in a format that can be read by both humans and gukdelines.

The structure of XML is based on a grouping of sections and elements that are annotated by start and end tags. Tags are user-friendly phrases used to indicate the data elements contained within the tags.

After your database has been mapped, the data elements must be marked in conformance with the specified document type definition DTD.

Attempting to open large pdf files over the Internet within the browser window may cause problems. It is strongly recommended you download this document to your own computer and open from there. This will require the exchange of technical and contact details as well as applicable digital certificates. Once this connection has been established and tested, E2B R2 files can be electronically submitted system to system using the AS2 transmission protocol.

For further information, refer to the Electronic submission of individual case safety reports – Electronic data interchange for ICSR submission using the E2B R2 format. Adverse event reports from the pharmaceutical industry that are submitted system to system are associated with a Sponsor record by TGA using the provided AS2 identifier and digital certificates of the sender organisation.

There is no limit to the number of xml files that can be submitted from your system to TGAs system.

What Is E2B(R3)?

Clinical trial reports can be electronically submitted system to system. Updated Can I submit follow-up adverse event reports in the E2B format? For cases previously provided in the E2B R2 format the follow-up report needs to include the same sender’s case safety report unique identifier A. For cases previously provided via another method such as email or the online form, the previously issued TGA reference number should be provided in the ‘Other case identifiers in previous transmissions’ A.


This will assist with the detection and management of duplicates. Electronic submission is only for medicine adverse event reports.

Updated How will I be notified when the report has been processed? Sponsors who have submitted an E2B formatted report as an XML file will receive a message delivery notification MDN from our system confirming receipt of the message.

A standard acknowledgment message relating to the success or failure of the transmission will be sent following processing of the message.

If the XML filesubmitted report was does not loaded successfully into the TGA’s system, the acknowledgment message will include a description of the first error encountered. If you do not receive an acknowledgement message, please contact e2b.

The existing methods for sponsors to submit adverse event reports will continue to be available. Sponsors are required to undertake validation testing with the TGA prior to using the E2B system to system functionality.

The validation process will be conducted with test reports in a dedicated testing environment at the TGA. Refer to the test scenarios to use the E2B standard. Your company can register their interest with the TGA by submitting an email to e2b. To meet the validation rules at least one patient characteristic field is required in gukdelines xml file to guideliness populated with a value.

If you believe there is a real patient involved but do not have any specific patient characteristics available, you can still report the adverse event by including a value in the Patient Initials B. New Where should personal identifying information be reported in the E2B format? It is the TGA’s preference that personal information, such as the names of patients, health professionals, or guiddlines facilities; date of birth; and patient identification numbers, are not included in the case narrative.


E2v information should instead be provided in the sender comments or applicable fields. During the on boarding process each organisation specifies the character encoding format that will be huidelines in the xml for the submitted cases. Once configured all submitted cases need to be provided in the specified format. All relevant additional documents held by the sender of the case should be specified in the xml A.

For adverse event reports from literature, the literature reference must be provided in A.

Whilst we strongly recommend our partners use Transport Layer Security SSL for security reasons, our system can be configured to not require it. The service is included in TGA’s business continuity plan which foresees the recovery of the service in case of a disaster. In the event the TGA E2B functionality is unavailable for a period which affects the sender’s ability to meet regulatory reporting timeframes, the sender must contact the TGA for advice on how to submit their report e2b.

In reviewing regulatory reporting timeframe compliance the TGA will consider relevant periods of unavailability of the service and the advice given by the TGA to the sender.

The TGA will also advise users if the E2B functionality will be unavailable for scheduled maintenance. Sponsors can continue to use the existing fuidelines process to request and receive adverse event reports from the TGA. At this stage the TGA does not have a set timeframe for when the service will be extended to include the E2B R3 format. Decrease the text size Increase the text size Print this page Share.
