How To Comply With IDMP Regulatory Requirements


The introduction of Identification of Medicinal Products (IDMP), as developed by the International Organization for Standardization (ISO), marks the next phase of evolution for the European drug dictionary project under Article 57.

The European Medicines Agency (EMA) will issue guidance based on five documents published by the ISO, which will require life sciences companies to use a “set of common global standards for data elements, formats, and terminologies for the unique identification and exchange of information on medicines.”

Complying with IDMP represents a massive increase in scope and complexity, in addition to previous iterations. The EMA has divided the timeline for meeting the new requirements into several phases, making this a multi-year project.
