Do you meet requirements for UDI?
Increased regulations mandating Unique Device Identification have emerged requiring uses of global standards.
Following recommendations from the International Medical Device Regulators Forum (IMDRF) an increasing number of regulations mandating Unique Device Identification (UDI) have emerged requiring use of global standards to identify medical devices.
Although Australia does not currently have any specific legislation in this area, the same global standard is used worldwide and within our market, so why not implement today before we catch up to the rest of the world and it becomes mandated.
The implementation of UDI can enhance patient safety and improve efficiency in the healthcare supply chain.
