Example of 5-4-2 Format
NDC to submit (Missing zero)
|xxxx-xxxx-xx (4-4-2)||0xxxx-xxxx-xx (5-4-2)|
|xxxxx-xxx-xx (5-3-2)||xxxxx-0xxx-xx (5-4-2)|
|xxxxx-xxxx-x (5-4-1)||xxxxx-xxxx-0x (5-4-2)|
- Bottle/invoice says 1234-5678-90. This is a 4-4-2.
- The section that doesn't fit the 5-4-2 submitting format is the first number section because it only contains four numbers.
- A zero is placed at the beginning of that section, creating the correct 01234-5678-90.
