Since 2015, medical device manufacturers have been scrambling to ensure they are successfully complying with various governments’ rules, regulations and timelines for Unique Device Identification (UDI). Moreover, they often use multiple systems to do so, and as a result, duplicate efforts instead of boosting efficiencies!

Different rules in different countries pose unique challenges to medical device companies. Meanwhile, more and more agencies will be implementing new rules over the next 5 years—and manufacturers often find themselves feeling in the dark with what these requirements are and how regulators want to receive them.

While the industry has achieved many milestones, there are a lot of unanswered questions in the healthcare realm. Join us for a compelling webinar where you will learn the answers to:

  • How are companies successfully creating, updating and sharing UDI data?
  • What systems, processes and tools are helping manufacturers satisfy individual data needs of both regulators and customers?
  • Where can people go to get educated, find best practices and drive efficiencies?


Speakers: Jason Gunn and Mike Crabb
