Being able to identify, track and trace medical devices at a global level enhances quality of care, patient safety and business processes. This is why the US Food and Drug Administration (US FDA) and new EU regulations now require medical devices and in-vitro diagnostics to carry a barcoded Unique Device Identifier (UDI) - a UDI number is needed on the medical device label, its packaging and, in some cases, the device itself.

With the Department of Health, US FDA and EU mandating the use of our standards, it's now critical that these are correctly adopted throughout the healthcare supply chain.

This interactive course will provide the foundations you need for implementation.

Who should attend?

This course is aimed at any medical device manufacturer trading in the US or Europe. Implementation of UDI regulations will require input from a cross-functional team, so this course is recommended for staff from the following departments:
