A4L: The Complete SPL Solution

SPL (Structured Product Labeling) is an XML format specified by the HL7 SPL working group and formally supported by the FDA (Food and Drug Administration).

The FDA requires all drug product content of labeling, drug listing, and establishment and registration information to be submitted in the SPL format. This initiative continues to expand and also includes Medical Devices and biologics Lot Distribution Reports. You can read more about the latest SPL Guidance updates here.

Since 2004, i4i has been a key member of the SPL Working Group, where we have used our XML knowledge and industry expertise to support the FDA’s SPL initiative. We remain committed to delivering comprehensive and easy-to-use structured authoring and content management solutions, that are first to market and best-in-class to comply with FDA standards.

To that end, our comprehensive A4L solution has been successfully deployed at over 90 pharmaceutical customers.

A4L addresses all aspects of SPL production, including full implementation of the Physician's Labeling Rule.
