identification of medicinal products

Formal Definition

a suite of five standards developed within ISO to provide an internationally-accepted framework to uniquely identify and describe medicinal products with consistent documentation, coding and exchange of product information between global regulators, manufacturers, suppliers and distributors.  


The ISO IDMP standards specify the use of standardised definitions for the identification and description of medicinal products for human use. Their purpose is to facilitate the reliable exchange of medicinal product information in a robust and consistent manner.
