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.
Join Dr. David Lim, Ph.D., RAC, ASQ-CQA in this session to understand and implement good practices compliant with the Unique Device Identification (UDI) final rules, which is finally issued on September 24, 2013. David will help you effectively implement a unique device identification (UDI) system applicable to your device types. He will discuss the new changes in the final rules, helping you save enormous amount of time, efforts and resources to achieve compliance and to remain compliant with the final UDI system requirements.
David will also present the good practices of implementing the relevant and applicable UDI system requirements in a CAC-SI manner.
