Request for EAD, product and address data
EAD Files and Product Range Files
Upon successful order, you will receive your EAD / product range file in a generated e-mail. Depending on the amount of your data, generating the file may take some time.
An EAD file contains data of your products in the status im Vertrieb (IV – active) and außer Vertrieb (AV – discontinued). You may notify all changes / alterations of changeable attributes with this EAD file. Please return the updated file to email@example.com exclusively.
You will only be charged once per PZN when updating more than one attribute in a single order file.
The Product Range Files are used for viewing or internal processing. The following contents are possible:
- PZN pre-allocation: Basic data of pre-allocated, not yet published pharmaceutical central numbers (ZU).
- EAD basic data: Basic data of products that are in distribution (IV) or out of distribution (AV).
- EAD complete: All data of products that are in distribution (IV) or out of distribution (AV) or are non-marketable (NV).
Further information on all attributes and on working with EAD files can be found in the guidelines (in German only) Guidelines for Notifying Product and Address Data.
