Products Management Services (PMS) -Implementation of International Organization for Standardization (ISO) standards for the identification of medicinal products (IDMP) in Europe

On 11 February 2020 the EMA announced the availability of the guideline of implementation of the ISO IDMP standards.

The ISO IDMP standards specify the use of standardised definitions for the identification and description of medicinal products for human use. The purpose of these standards is to facilitate the reliable exchange of medicinal product information in a robust and consistent manner, by providing a common product ’language’ for stakeholders to use in their interactions.

The use of ISO IDMP standards is required in accordance with Articles 25 and 26 of Commission Implementing Regulation (EU) No 520/2012. These provisions mandate Member States, marketing authorisation holders and the EMA to use ISO IDMP standards for the exchange and communication of information on medicinal products.
