It is known that retarded functional differential equations (RFDEs) can be regarded as generalized ordinary differential equations (we write GODEs). See [2, 6, 7]. In this paper, we prove the equivalence between RFDEs with pre-assigned moments of impulse effects and a certain class of GODEs introduced in  using some ideas of [2, 6, 7]. We state results on the existence, uniqueness and continuous dependence of solutions for this class of GODEs and we use them to obtain fine results concerning the corresponding impulsive RFDEs.
