SPOR Data Management Services.

What is SPOR?

SPOR is an acronym for Substance, Product, Organization and Referential and refers to the EMA’s program to implement the ISO IDMP Identification of Medicinal Products) standards which aim to “to facilitate the reliable exchange of medicinal product information in a robust and consistent manner, by providing a common product ’language’ ” – EMA/732656/2015. European Medicines Agency. Information Management Division. 29 November 2016.

The ISO IDMP framework is comprised of 5 standards – ISO 11238 (Substances), ISO 11239 (Dosage, Units, Packaging etc.), ISO 11240 (Units of Measurement), ISO 11616 (Regulated pharmaceutical product information) and ISO 11615 (Regulated medicinal product information).

The need for SPOR has arisen to comply with this framework and for various data integrity and accuracy reasons such as different names for substances, different names used for the same organization, and generally inconsistent data across databases.

The SPOR data aims therefore to bring information stored in different systems into one high-quality, consistent master data format that provides benefits for multiple stakeholders.

To manage SPOR the EMA has set up a data portal where companies can register and update their related data with four data management services:

  • Substance Management Services (SMS).

  • Product Management Services (PMS).

  • Organizations Management Services (OMS).

  • Referential Management Services (RMS).
