What is an NDC or National Drug Code number?

A an 11-digit number consisting of three sets of numbers in this order: the labeler, the drug, and the package

The NDC number gives information about the drug, including the labeler, the drug itself, and the package size. It contains 11 digits and they are in this stated order. Note: Some NDC numbers may have only 10 digits, dropping 1 digit in the first or second set of numbers. Many manufacturers and packagers use 10 digits because of a standardized label-printing process.
