Meeting Global Unique Device
Identification Requirements
Regulation, Compliance and Best Practices

Wednesday, July 29, 2020 • 1:30 p.m. - 3:00 p.m. EDT

Requirements around Unique Device Identification (UDI) are evolving. Despite efforts by the Global Harmonization Task Force and International Medical Device Regulator Forum to integrate global expectations, national guidelines have continued to develop in differing ways.

Even now, when the deadline for final implementation of Class I products is quickly approaching in the United States and UDI timelines in the EU remain unchanged due to COVID-19, regulatory bodies in other countries are starting to implement their own new programs.

For a company working to manufacture and deliver products around the world, meeting all these needs is complicated.

If you’re searching for the best way to fulfill the competing needs of various identification requirements or hoping to find the most efficient way to appropriately identify your product in different global markets, this webinar has your answers.

UDI expert Jay Crowley will share ways to manage multiple regulatory bodies, best practices around establishing and maintaining robust and effective global UDI processes, possible responses to distinct local UDI concerns and how to submit identification product data to various stakeholders.
