There are five types of DMFs, of which Type III involves the packaging material – container. The US DMF file library is a widely referenced supplier repository for pharmaceutical manufacturers worldwide, and the completion of DMF filing provides following advantages: – Companies that have obtained filing numbers and their products will be displayed on the FDA website, allowing them to build partnership with more pharmaceutical manufacturers; – Companies holding the DMF filing numbers granted by FDA can be given priority by pharmaceutical manufacturers in the competition with other companies, thereby gaining a competitive advantage; – FDA may update information at any time as required by the filed companies; – The risk of leakage of company’s confidential technology as a result of providing information to numerous pharmaceutical customers can be reduced; In particular, for a pharmaceutical manufacturer who submits a registration application to FDA, the DMF filing number can be directly referenced in the relevant section of the dossier, which simplifies the application.
