Full evaluation route registration guide

Follow this guide for documentary requirements, fees and turn-around-time to register your cell, tissue or gene therapy products (CTGTP) via the full evaluation route.


You must register your CTGTP via the full evaluation route if it has not been approved by any of our comparable overseas regulator at the time of submission.

Pre-submission notification

Notify us at least two months before you submit your full evaluation application via email to HSA_CTGTP@hsa.gov.sg with the following information:

  • Product name.
  • Active ingredients.
  • Summaries of quality, non-clinical and clinical data (e.g. Module 2.4 Non-clinical Overview, Module 2.5 Clinical Overview)
  • Planned submissions in other countries.
  • Planned date of submission to HSA.

Note: You may request for a pre-market consultation with us if it is necessary to discuss specific areas related to your application, including the need for an overseas Good Clinical Practice (GCP) inspection, where relevant. Your meeting request to us must be made at least five months before the proposed meeting date, with the meeting agenda clearly stated. Relevant documents such as presentation slides and briefing documents should be provided at least 30 working days before the meeting.

Your application dossier must be submitted to us in a CD/DVD labelled with the following information:

Application checklists

Each application must be accompanied by an application checklist, completed by the applicant and attached in the online application form.

Use one of the following application checklists based on your choice of CTD format. Each checklist provides details on the specific documents that need to be submitted with your application.
