Data Certification Program - Certification

IDEA’s Data Certification Program is designed to measure the item-level completeness and quality of data available within the IDW.

The program focuses on 43 critical data fields in the IDW that contain the transactional and descriptive product information distributors need to conduct business and sell manufacturers’ products (e.g. brand, packaging, price effective date, etc.). An item is compliant if its critical fields are fully-populated. The content within the compliant items’ critical fields then undergoes quarterly programmatic and visual quality checks to measure against the excellence metric and ensure consistency and accuracy.

The manufacturers below are IDW for Manufacturer subscribers (Premium Content) recognized for achieving the highest level within the IDW Data Certification Program - full data certification.
