They are also mandated for various types of products including human prescription/Standard template at HC drugs (labeling of pharmaceutical products, biological and generic drugs), over-the-counter (OTC) products, veterinary medicine, homeopathic products, bulk ingredients, etc. Some of the common document types SPL/SPM format that are supported by the US FDA and Health Canada are listed below.
