United Kingdom GS1 UK Europe/London public

Unique Device Identification (UDI) forms the foundations of many global healthcare regulations. As a supplier, it is important to know exactly what you need to do to comply and understand what doing so means in clinical settings, beyond the realms of the healthcare supply chain.

To ensure you are up to speed on how to use and implement GS1 standards to meet UDI requirements, we have developed a short half day programme that will provide you with an in-depth understanding of what you need to do. 

Join us to discover how the seemingly small act of uniquely identifying your products has a huge impact on transforming patient care.
