Unique Device Identification (UDI) Final Rules Overview



This webinar is intended to help you get familiar with the Unique Device Identification (UDI) final rules, finally issued on September 24, 2013.

This webinar is further intended to help you effectively implement a unique device identification (UDI) system (UDI system). In particular, new changes in the final rules will be discussed, helping to save you an enormous amount of time, efforts and resources to achieve compliance and to remain compliant with the final UDI system requirements.

In 2007, Congress passed legislation directing the FDA to develop regulations establishing a unique device identification system for medical devices. The UDI final rules are intended to establish a system to adequately identify devices during use and distribution.
According to the finalized UDI rules, most medical devices distributed in the US are required to carry a Unique Device Identifier unless subject to an exception or alternative placement. The UDI system requires each device and each package to carry a UDI, the UDI of which should be provided in a plain text and in a form usable by automatic identification and data capture (AIDC) technology.
If the device is intended to be used more than once and intended to be reprocessed before each use, the UDI must be directly marked on the device itself.

The speaker will present how to implement the UDI system requirements in a CAC-SI manner.
