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.
You can submit online or written comments on any guidance at any time (see 21 CFR 10.115(g)(5))
