Structured Product Labeling

The Structured Product Labeling (SPL) is a document markup standard approved by Health Level Seven (HL7) and adopted by FDA as a mechanism for exchanging product and facility information.

SPL documents contain both the content of labeling (all text, tables and figures) for a product along with additional machine readable information (drug listing data elements). Drug listing data elements include information about the product (product and generic names, ingredients, ingredient strengths, dosage forms, routes of administration, appearance, DEA schedule) and the packaging (package quantity and type).

We use Pragmatic Validator Lite™ to validate SPL for any critical error. We do lifecycle management of SPL (version and set id management).

The period for Product Listing Certification using the Product Listing Certification SPL submission is October 1st through December 31st.

This information will assist in constructing an accurate inventory of facilities, sites and organizations involved in the manufacture of generic drugs, setting annual facility fee amounts, and targeting inspections. Reporting period for self-identification opens May 1st to June 1st of every year.
