On November 24, 2008, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) announced the availability of a draft guidance document entitled “Contents of a Complete Submission for the Evaluation of Proprietary Names.” The document is intended to help prevent medication errors by assisting industry in the submission of complete product information that will enable FDA to evaluate the safety of proposed proprietary drug and biological product names. In addition, FDA intends to use this information in the assessment of promotional aspects of proposed proprietary names. The FDA will accept comments on the draft until January 23, 2009.
