The Importance of UDI
The labeling of medical devices and in vitro diagnostic medical devices serves to facilitate traceability and the availability of standardized information. In case of a malfunction traceability helps to identify products quickly and reliably.
In the future, new European legal framework for medical devices and new regulations in the US market will oblige manufacturers to introduce a system of unique device identification (UDI) for medical devices. Many manufacturers are now faced with the question of how these regulatory requirements can be met and how they can create added value for the company.
Benefit from our expert knowledge
At our workshop at March 26, 2019 two experts will explain the new legal requirements and show you how to successfully implement a traceability system as a project in your company.
