Health informatics -- Identification of medicinal products -- Implementation guidelines for ISO 11616 data elements and structures for the unique identification and exchange of regulated pharmaceutical product information

ISO/TS 20451:2017 defines the concepts required to associate pharmaceutical products with an appropriate set of PhPID(s) in accordance with ISO 11616.

The suite of ISO IDMP standards can be applied to off-label usage of Medicinal Products, but is currently outside of the scope of ISO/TS 20451:2017.
