Drug establishments are required to provide FDA with a current list of all drugs manufactured, prepared, propagated, compounded or processed for sale in the U.S. at their facilities. Drugs are identified and reported using a unique, three-segment number called the National Drug Code (NDC) which serves as the FDA’s identifier for drugs. These codes are updated and published daily in this public dataset.

This dataset for the directory contains information on active and certified finished and unfinished drugs submitted in structured product labeling (SPL) electronic listing files by labelers.

It contains product listing data submitted for all finished drugs including prescription and over-the-counter drugs, approved and unapproved drugs and repackaged and relabeled drugs.
