Data Standards Catalog (XLS) The spreadsheet provides a listing of supported and/or required standards, their uses, the date FDA will begin (or has begun) to support a particular standard, and the date support ends (or will end), the date the requirement to use a particular standard will begin (or has begun) and the date such requirement ends (or will end), as well as other pertinent information. For Centers other than CBER and CDER there may be additional supported standards, please check with the specific Center.
