What is an NDC and where do I find it?
NDC stands for “National Drug Code”. Every manufactured pharmaceutical approved by the FDA will have a National Drug Code. This is a 10 or 11 digit number which is divided into 3 sections (55555-4444-22) and is specific to the drug manufacturer, drug, strength and package size. This number is usually found on the label of the drug. In compounded pharmaceuticals, the NDC of the raw chemical used to create the compound should be used. Some pharmaceuticals do not display their NDC. If you are unable to find the NDC, 123 Compliant Logistics can look up the NDC for you or assign a “generic” or pseudo NDC to your pharmaceutical.
