Update to IDMP Iteration 1

Written by Steve Scribner on 23/06/16

The ISO IDMP Task Force met in April to compile recommended changes to the content of the information model. A revised draft version was scheduled for vote in the meeting on May 12. A revised timeline was also on schedule to be discussed. We will publish an update in the next blog.

Several highlights to the content changes include:

  • Allow cross-references from one generation submission to another (e.g. IND to NDA or CTA to MAA) or to another, different medicinal product.
  • Add Orphan Designation
  • Updates to Marketing Status
  • Delete PSUR (already handled by other standards)
  • Added Ingredient Manufacturer
Summary of the 79 data elements required* for Iteration 1:
  • 28 existing from XEVMPD
  • 14 redefined from XEVMPD
  • 33 new elements, including:
    • 9 for Medicinal Product Name
    • 5 for Marketing Authorization
    • 6 for Pharmaceutical Product
    • 6 for Packaging
    • 3 for Manufacturing items
    • 6 others (Clinical Particulars, Ingredients, etc.)

* The model may still be modified. It is not yet final.
