There are three primary types of data we publish on the BuyandBill.com drug shortages table:

1. In Shortage: The Drug Shortages Staff (DSS) at the FDA determines that a drug is in shortage, or is not available in high enough supply to cover the entire market demand. 

2. Shortage Resolved: The Drug Shortages Staff (DSS) at the FDA uses information from manufacturers to determine that a drug shortage has been resolved. Per the FDA, “The market is considered covered when supply is available from at least one manufacturer to cover total market demand.”

3. Discontinuation: Pharmaceutical manufacturers are required to notify the FDA of a permanent discontinuance of specific drug products. Per the FDA, this includes drugs that are “life-supporting, life-sustaining or for use in the prevention or treatment of a debilitating disease or condition, including any such drug used in emergency medical care or during surgery.”
