What is included in a drug listing?

A drug listing submitted to the FDA contains drug product key information, typically including: product information (National Drug Code (NDC, brand name and generic name, dosage form, route of administration and strength and unit of measure of the drug substance), labeling, marketing status and establishment information. Reed Tech can help you collect this information and covert it to the right format for Health Authority submission.

How do I submit to FDA?

The FDA utilizes an electronic system, the Electronic Drug Registration and Listing System (eDRLS), for drug registration and listing via an electronic submission gateway (ESG). As a third-party service provider, Reed Tech is able to make submissions to the ESG on behalf of our customers.

How do manufacturers listings vs. distributors listings differ?

The key difference is in who submits the drug listing and what it represents between manufacturers and distributors. The submitting party may vary based on individual agreements; however, the manufacturer is ultimately responsible for ensuring all their drug products, even those private-labeled by distributors, are listed with the FDA. Additionally, a single drug product might have multiple listings in the FDA database if it is marketed under different brand names by PLDs.

Who can be a US Agent?

The US Agent acts as a crucial liaison between the foreign manufacturer and the FDA, ensuring smooth communication and regulatory compliance. To qualify as a US Agent, a company or organization must be registered and established in the US. They also must have a physical presence, availability during normal business hours to answer questions from the FDA or facilitate communication and be US-based. Reed Tech is an experienced US Agent.
