ICH and CTD

The Common Technical Document (CTD) is maintained by ICH. In the CTD, quality, safety and efficacy information are put together in a common format. The CTD enabled the implementation of good review practices. It makes the regulatory review process simple. With the CTD, reformatting information for different ICH regulatory authorities is a thing of the past.CTD has five modules. The first is region specific and the remaining four are meant to apply to all regions.

FDA and ICH

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is a founding member of ICH. Per the agency's website, they promote ICH requirements and their use by by pharma regulatory authorities around the globe. As a member, FDA can, among other things, endorse draft ICH guidelines.
