Drug Establishment Registration and Listing Services

FDA Drug Establishment Registration

The US FDA requires domestic and foreign establishments that manufacture, repack, or re-label drug products in or import to the United States to register each establishment. Additionally, drug manufacturers, re-packers or re-labelers must electronically list all of their commercially marketed drug products.

The AJW Technology Consultants team is poised and ready to support both US-based and international drug manufacturers prepare and submit their drug establishment registrations and complete the mandatory annual renewals (between October 1 and December 31 each year).

US Agent Services for Drug Establishments

All foreign establishments manufacturing, repacking, or relabeling drug products for the US Marketplace must appoint a US Agent to serve as the contact point with the FDA. According to 21 CFR Sec. 207.69, the responsibilities for the US Agent are as follows:

  • Reviewing, disseminating, routing, and responding to all communications from FDA including emergency communications;
  • Responding to questions concerning those drugs that are imported or offered for import to the United States;
  • Assisting FDA in scheduling inspections; and
  • If FDA is unable to contact a foreign registrant directly or expeditiously, FDA may provide the information and/or documents to the United States agent. FDA’s providing information and/or documents to the United States agent is equivalent to providing the same information and/or documents to the foreign registrant.

Official Contact Services for Drug Establishments

All pharmaceutical establishments (including domestic US Companies) that are required to register an establishment are required to identify (or appoint) an official contact with whom the FDA will communicate. According to 21 CFR Sec. 207.69, the responsibilities for the US Agent are as follows:

  1. Ensuring the accuracy of registration and listing information; and
  2. Reviewing, disseminating, routing, and responding to all communications from FDA including emergency communications.

The drug establishment registration process requires that each organization identify the name, address, phone number and email address for the official contact.

Our office headquarters in Tampa Bay, Florida is well-positioned and experienced in service as the US Agent and official contact for foreign pharmaceutical establishments.

Drug Listing Services

The US FDA requires that all OTC, Rx, Homeopathic, and API (Active Pharmaceutical Ingredient) be listed for each drug product manufactured and labeled for the US marketplace. The listings are submitted electronically via the FDA submission portal, Electronic Drug Registration and Listing System (eDRLS). The eDRLS utilizes Structured Product Label (SPL) format for each drug to be listed. Drug listings may be submitted by the manufacturer or labeler (or private label distributor). Each labeler must request a unique labeler code or National Drug Code (NDC) which is issued by the FDA and is used to link the labeler to the drug products it is marketing as well as specific formulations and packaging configurations. An active NDC must be established prior to the submission of each drug listing.

Any changes to established drug listings must be reported to the FDA immediately, upon implementation. If there are no changes to the drug listing(s) during the course of the year, a mandatory no change certification is required annually between October 1 and December 31, otherwise the FDA will consider the drug listing to be inactive and will be removed from the Agency databases.
