Registration will open in October 2019.

This event is FREE and open to the public. You may attend in-person or online.

The goal of this interactive conference is to provide useful information on prescription drug labeling development and discuss recently published FDA labeling guidances. FDA labeling specialists will present their unique perspectives concerning approaches and challenges in developing the Prescribing Information, FDA-approved patient labeling, and carton/container labeling, and will discuss methods to improve the quality of Structured Product Labeling (SPL) submissions.

Meeting participants (in-person and online) will have an opportunity (as time allows) to share their experiences and ask questions during dedicated Q&A panels.


  • Updating labeling
  • Overview of recently published FDA labeling guidances:
    • Indications and Usage section of Labeling guidance
    • Drug Abuse and Dependence Section of Labeling guidance
  • Incorporating specific population information in labeling (e.g., pediatric patients, pregnant patients, lactating patients, and females and males of reproductive potential)
  • Clinical pharmacology information in labeling
  • Product quality information in labeling
  • Labeling for biological products
  • FDA-approved patient labeling (instructions for use)
  • Methods to improve the quality of Structured Product Labeling submissions


Our 2019 CDER Prescription Drug Labeling Conference is intended for industry, academia, payors, and healthcare providers who

  • Review, develop, submit, or use the Prescribing Iinformation, Instructions for Use, and/or carton/container labeling
  • Create or submit Structured Product Labeling files to the FDA


  • Explain correct labeling when submitting New Drug Applications, Biologics License Applications, and/or supplements.
  • Identify recommendations from new FDA guidances into future labeling submissions (e.g., indications; pediatric use information; abuse, misuse, addiction, tolerance, and dependence information; and the product title and Initial U.S. Approval in Highlights of Prescribing Information)
  • Distinguish between different requirements and recommendations in biological product labeling and drug product labeling
  • Incorporate pregnancy, lactation, and females and males of reproductive potential information in labeling
  • Revise clinical pharmacology information in labeling according to recently published guidances
  • Differentiate between different dosage form terminology in labeling
  • Demonstrate clear, concise, and well-understood Instructions for Use for products that have complicated or detailed patient-use instructions
  • Analyze the quality of Structured Product Labeling file submissions
