Physician Labeling Rule (PLR) Conversions
PLR is intended to provide health care professionals with clear and concise prescribing information, and better manage the risks of medication use and reduce medical errors. It also makes prescription information more accessible for use with electronic prescribing tools and other electronic information resources.

Bound by a federal mandate, the United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has required that all NDAs, BLAs, and Efficacy Supplements submitted after June 30, 2006 conform to the SPL-PLR rule. In addition, all NDAs, BLAs, and Efficacy Supplements approved after June 30, 2001 must be converted to the SPL-PLR format during the course of a 7-year implementation period. .

Pregnancy Lactation Labeling Rule (PLLR) Conversions
Recent changes to US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) drug labeling for pregnant and lactating women make prescribing more complex than it used to be, but the information will be far more complete and much more current.

The new PLLR has been designed to help prescribers assess the benefits and risks of medication for pregnant and lactating women. In contrast to the old system, the prescribers have used letter categories — A, B, C, D, and X — to evaluate safety precautions.

The PLR is intended to make information on prescription drugs easier to read. For example, labels now include a "highlights" section containing bulleted information, a table of contents, warnings in bold font, and other useful information. However, the rule only applies to products approved under a New Drug Application (NDA), Biologics Licensing Application (BLA) or efficacy supplement (ES) approved between 2001 and 30 June 2006, as well as all products thereafter.

Structured Product Labeling (SPL)
The FDA mandates the filing of product labeling information in the SPL (Structured Product Labeling) format. Many pharmaceutical developers, therefore, have determined the need for a reliable service provider that will enable their companies to meet Regulatory compliance guidelines without straining their current business practices.

Depending on the context, Freyr recreates or efficiently utilizes your current labeling content and transforms this readily available content into the required SPL R4 or Physician’s Labeling Rule Compliant format.
