What is IDMP ?

ISO IDMP standards

IDentification of Medicinal Products (IDMP) is a data model, described in a set of five ISO standards and is used to describe the product and its characteristics.


  • provides structured medicinal, pharmaceutical product and substance data models
  • provides mechanisms to uniquely identify products and its components
  • is the only global standard for medicinal product information
  • is applicable to industry and regulators (in similar fashion as ISO 9001; Quality Management and other ISO standards)

IDMP is a global standard accepted by all 163 ISO member countries


Across the board industry stakeholders and health authorities are implementing IDMP. In the European Union this implementation is in the form of SPOR, Master Data Management product on Substances, Products, Organizations and Referentials.

SPOR data is meant to optimize the use of data across different processes (regulatory, pharmacovigilance, clinical, production, etc.) and IT tools (eAF, IRIS portal, CESP, CTA, EMVS, etc.).

Webinar ISO IDMP EU Implementation Guide

With the publication of the ISO IDMP EU Implementation Guide v2.0, the actual implementation clock becomes a reality.

The published guidance should give sufficient instructions to all involved parties: Regulators, Industry and Vendors to prepare. As IDMP has a significant impact on the organization and v2.0 provides more insights in the to-be established processes of submission of structured data with the regulatory activities (the Target Operating Model: TOM)

Watch our webinar on the Implementation Guide v2.0


In March 2020 EMA published Iteration 1 of the ISO IDMP EU Implementation Guide. For this occasion we hosted the first webinar on the implementation guide. That recording is also still available.

What is the impact of IDMP implementation for your organization?

IDMP will change the way of communication with the regulators.

Together with the current document-based submission, structured medicinal product data will be submitted, reviewed and approved during the regulatory activity.

time to start ISO IDMP implementation

To meet this change in requirement, your company will need to transition towards a data-driven organization, which can optimize internal processes and sharing of information between different technology solutions and departments.

Based on experience, we know that this transformation takes time, as it requires buy-in from multiple stakeholders, adaptation of processes and technological landscape. Therefore, it is paramount to start now!

With our experience in IDMP implementation strategies, regulatory operations combined with extensive production experience, we can support you in making sure that this transformation goes smoothly.

How IDMP-ready are you?

With the mandatory use of PMS approaching it is time to take the necessary steps to smoothen the transition towards IDMP implementation. But how IDMP-ready are you? To find out your current state compared to the desired state before implementing IDMP, we have designed a questionnaire.

After submission you will receive a personal report including a presentation on your results by one of our IDMP specialist on your next steps and topics that require your attention from an IDMP readiness point of view. You will receive this report without any obligation.

Find out how IDMP-ready you are by taking our questionnaire
