i4i's SPL Creation & Submission Services

Solving Today's Regulatory Issues

In October 2005, the FDA officially adopted the HL7 SPL (Structured Product Labeling) standard as the mechanism for exchanging product and facility information. Pharmaceutical and health care organizations are required to submit their product information electronically, as XML documents that conform to the HL7 SPL specification.

As an XML pioneer and leading contributor to the development of the SPL standard, i4i possesses an intricate understanding of the FDA requirements. Thanks to this knowledge, i4i's products and services offer unparalleled speed and accuracy in the creation and migration of labeling documents to the SPL format.

With SPL DIRECT, i4i can assist with any part of the SPL creation process, ranging from full outsourcing to in-house conversions. Regardless of the kind of products you manufacture or distribute, we can transform your labels from any source format to SPL. i4i is also well positioned and offers XML conversions for the ACA6004 submissions[Drug Sample reporting].

i4i Advantage at all levels

i4i's conversion services are delivered by experienced and knowledgeable regulatory specialists, using our industry leading content authoring application, A4L.

The combination of the A4L platform, experienced personnel, and a process-oriented testing methodology ensures quality and compliance. A4L ensures XML validation against the required schema files that are provided by the SPL Implementation and Guidance documentation.

In-depth validation is performed using the FDA's SPL validation rules, including OTC Monograph/CRF rules, Medication Guide validation, required content of labeling sections, and UNII code and moiety validation—to ensure that the SPL will be submission ready.

These processes support all SPL requirements and standards, and ensure the validity and acceptance of your labels.
