The Drug Information Association (DIA), in collaboration with the Generic Pharmaceutical Association (GPhA), PhRMA, and the Consumer Healthcare Products Association (CHPA), will host eDrug Listing and Establishment Registration--FDA and Industry: Overview and Lessons Learned on SPL (August 11-12; Philadelphia, PA)

The FDA Amendments Act (FDAAA) mandated the requirements for electronic drug establishment registration and drug product listing. FDA has adopted the use of extensible markup language (XML) files in a standard structured product labeling format as the standard format for the exchange of drug establishment registration and drug product listing information. Featured topics will include:

  • Lessons learned from the electronic registration/drug product listing pilot
  • Validation rules applied by FDA
  • Nuances of SPL lifecycle management, including findings from the electronic listing pilot and early production submissions.
  • SPL Release 4 terminology
  • Product listing and establishment registration for various complex scenarios (e.g., export only products, product kits, etc.)
The SPL Vendor Showcase will provides an opportunity for attendees to evaluate a number of currently available services and tools as they are used to produce an equivalent final product. During this session, participating vendors will demonstrate their services and/or tools and present their results.

The SPL Live Q&A will allow attendees to ask key FDA representatives about electronic establishment registration and product listing regulatory content, SPL technical content, or the ESG submission process

"This one-of-kind event is the only opportunity to hear industry and FDA representatives discuss best practices for electronic establishment registration and product listing," says Program Co-chair Therese Brunone, MS, Assistant Director, Global Regulatory Operations, GlaxoSmithKline.
