eBooks for SPL

Update: April 30, 2012:
The FDA is doing a complete revision and overhaul of the eBooks and eCards. The new eBooks and eCards are posted on this web page: http://www.fda.gov/ForIndustry/DataStandards/StructuredProductLabeling/ucm155705.htm#spl_training_mat.
In the future, new or revised validation procedures/solutions will be marked with an asterisk in updated versions of these eBooks. Since these are the first (the other error solution eBook was a combined version with information about all SPL types) versions, it would be confusing to some readers if asterisks were included.

The first two SPL training eBooks for error messages/solutions are now on the site: one for NDC/NHRIC labeler code and one for establishment registration SPL files.
