Pharmaceutical companies must manage the process of designing and creating product labels that meet regulatory requirements. This includes product-labeling documents such as Packet Inserts (PIs), Summaries of Product Characteristics (SmPCs) and Core Data Sheets (CDSs). The large number of product strengths, dosage forms and product presentations results in a large number of labeling records that must be maintained and kept synchronized.
The FDA and EMA are implementing a set of rules for the electronic submission of labeling content. The FDA requires companies to submit XML labeling content in Structured Product Labeling (SPL) format. The EMA requires companies to submit product information documents in QRD-compliant format.
Companies in the regulated life sciences industries must develop and implement systems and processes that will ensure compliance with these standards for their global labeling content. They must also take a longer-term view as to how best to minimize the complexity and cost of doing so.
In this webinar, we will discuss ways to overcome these regulatory challenges and understand how companies in the life sciences industries are doing so through best practices.
