Description

The Template for Collection of Product, Item, and Trade Item Master Data Hierarchies is intended to guide the development of standardized master product lists in support of pharmaceutical traceability. This template is not intended to be prescriptive, but rather to serve as a guide for structuring the collection of standardized master data, including the use of the GTIN where applicable. Implementers should view this template as a starting point to be tailored to their specific needs and country contexts. The data attribute fields included are illustrative and can be removed, altered, or expanded upon as needed, including adding country-specific attributes as relevant (e.g., insurance codes, reimbursement codes, program attributes). Download the Template.

The Guidance on Collection of Product, Item, and Trade Item Master Data Hierarchies is intended to support the use of the above template by providing additional information including an overview of master data and data hierarchies, navigational guidance, and recommended data collection and entry procedures.
