How to implement Unique Device Identification (UDI) Webinar

The FDA has released the Unique Device Identification (UDI) Rule for medical devices and it is now a federal regulation for the U.S. healthcare supply chain. The E.U. is proposing a similar regulation for medical device marking and barcode labelling within Europe. Both regulations will imapct the medical device and life sciences industry in Ireland and manufacturers will need to prepare for compliance.

How can GS1 standards help with compliance with UDI?

GS1 standards, and specifically the GTIN (Global Trade Item Number) are already recognised across the healthcare industry as a unique identifier of medical devices, surgical products and healthcare supplies. The GS1 GTIN used for device identification, along with Production Information (PI) supports the FDA UDI regulation.
