About the AHPA NDI DatabaseAHPA's staff regularly obtains NDI notifications from FDA's Division of Dockets Management. NDI notifications are reviewed and the following information is posted on the searchable AHPA NDI Database:
- The Report Number* assigned by FDA
- The name of the submitting company*
- The name of the NDI*
- The common* and Latin name* of the NDI if it is a botanical
- The dosage of the NDI that the submitter recommends for use in a dietary supplement, stated per serving and per day if that information is provided
- An "Outcome Statement" that provides a brief summary of FDA's response to the notification
- Links to documents submitted by the notifier, and to FDA's responses
- Links to prior submissions whenever a notification is a follow-up to an earlier notification
In addition, the "Outcome Statement" provided in the AHPA NDI Database for each notification saves users the time that would otherwise be needed to search through each notification to find FDA's reaction and response. These succinct summaries provide valuable information that assists users in understanding FDA's thinking as it processes NDI notifications.
There are currently more than 950 NDI notifications available in the AHPA NDI Database. No other resource provides such an up-to-date compilation of all of the NDI notifications that have been submitted to FDA since the first of these was filed in August 1995. Subscribers are contacted by email when new notifications are added to the AHPA NDI Database.
