UDI Direct Marking for FDA Compliance Navigating New Rules
Confused by the FDA’s UDI direct marking regulations? What information should go on the label and the device itself? What methods of marking are acceptable? What’s the difference between a device identifier and a production identifier? What additional requirements are placed on reprocessed devices?
The FDA’s final guidance on UDI (unique device identification) raises as many questions as it answers. With full compliance for Class I, II and unclassified devices looming, lawyers are hard at work parsing the FDA’s language.
