Read Frequently Asked Questions

Many companies offer their devices in the EU, so must comply with the EU UDI regulations. There are significant differences from the US system. While some details remain, there is sufficient information to allow companies to start planning. This webinar can help you prepare for this major aspect of the new EU regulations.

Bonus Material:

Participants will receive a PDF of the summary of UDI requirements in both the MDR and the IVDR.

Why Should You Attend:

The EU has made available the Medical Device Regulation (MDR) and the In Vitro Diagnostic Regulation (IVDR) before the final versions come into effect. These regulations describe the EU approach for Unique Device Identification. The regulations raise many interesting issues as part of the implementation. For example, the regulations include the distribution chain in UDI. An Economic Operator includes the manufacturer, the importer and the distributor. Importers and distributors verify the manufacturer assigned a UDI. For some kinds of devices, the Economic Operator as well as Health Institutions must keep records of the UDIs they have supplied or received.

Production Identifiers identify the unit of device production and could include serial number, lot/batch number, Software identification, manufacturing date or expiration date. If the label has a lot number, serial number, software identification or an expiration date on the label, then it becomes part of UDI-PI. The manufacturing date does not have to be part of UDI-PI unless it is the only production identifier on the label.

The regulation has special consideration for specific device types such as implantable devices, procedure packs, configurable devices and software.

There is a database with twenty-two core data elements including device status (not placed on the market, recalled, Field Safety Corrective Action initiated), name and address of the manufacturer and if applicable, the authorized representative and the device risk class. The database structure and submissions methods are not yet available.
