NDC (NDC Number)
National Drug Code. A unique number assigned to a drug by the manufacturer for identification purposes. The NDC is in one of three formats: 4-4-2, 5-3-2, or 5-4-1. The first part is the manufacturer’s code, the second part is the product number, and the last is the code for the package size and type. This is one of the fields in the local DRUG file (#50).
