GUIDANCE DOCUMENT

SPL Standard for Content of Labeling Technical Qs & As October 2009

Draft

Not for implementation. Contains non-binding recommendations.

Docket Number:
FDA-2009-D-0355
Issued by:
Guidance Issuing Office
Center for Biologics Evaluation and Research
Center for Drug Evaluation and Research

This guidance is intended to assist applicants who submit content of labeling to FDA as part of a marketing application using the structured product labeling standard (SPL) in extensible markup language (XML). The guidance also provides information to FDA staff who review and manage product information using electronic systems. This is revision 1 of a guidance of the same name that was issued in December 2005. The guidance has been revised to reflect changes in the technology since 2005 and to harmonize the submission of SPL in the Center for Biologics Evaluation and Research (CBER) and the Center for Drug Evaluation and Research (CDER). We anticipate that additional guidance will be provided as new questions arise about the use of SPL in different contexts.
