How to Implement UDI: Lessons from Early Adopters

With all the extensions, special exemptions, and promises of regulatory restraint, there’s plenty of time to get ready for the FDA’s UDI rule deadlines, right? Think again. UDI deadlines are coming fast for all devicemakers and soon the FDA will demand compliance.

Don’t delay, even if it seems there’s no rush. It's already clear that implementation and compliance with this new rule is a big challenge. You'll need to understand what UDI is … who it applies to … what the exceptions to the rule are … what deadlines you must meet … what UDI-issuing agencies are ... and how to work with them.

Thankfully, help is here. FDAnews asked the man who helped write the rule, Jay Crowley, former Senior Advisor for Patient Safety in the Food and Drug Administration's Center for Devices and Radiological Health, to host this 90-minute session on how to implement UDI.

Since leaving the agency, Jay has worked with USDM Life Sciences, consulting with companies to get their UDI systems up to speed and working. Jay’s seen the UDI requirements from both sides, and what he’s learned in the early days of UDI adoption will potentially save you from some of the headaches experienced by companies that have already implemented UDI.

You will learn:

  • The difference between UDI and track and trace;
  • The timetable for implementation for Class I, Class II and Class III devices;
  • Which devices must comply with the rule and which are exempt;
  • What information must be included on product labels;
  • How to submit device identification information to the GUDID;
  • About the accredited UDI-issuing agencies, their roles (and how to become one);
  • The benefits of UDI to industry, regulators and the public;
  • 10 key lessons early adopters learned the hard way — so you don’t have to;
  • And much more….
