With the UDI system (Unique Device Identification) manufacturers are obliged to identify and register medical devices. In this webinar, laser marking experts will tell you what you need to know about UDI marking of medical devices, instruments and implants.
This is what you will get:
With the UDI system (Unique Device Identification) manufacturers are obliged to identify and register medical devices. In the EU, the UDI is regulated within the framework of the MDR (Medical Device Regulation). In the USA, the FDA is authoritative. Seamless product tracking, less product piracy and highest patient safety are the goals. The challenges for manufacturers and marketers are no less demanding. Although already in place for the US, the implementation of the MDR for the European market is often still unclear. Due to the Corona pandemic, the official start date for the EU has now been changed from 26 May 2020 to 2021.
We bring you up to date on the current status of UDI direct marking of medical devices and give an overview of the UDI system according to MDR and FDA.
- Why the UDI code is much more than a label and should not be underestimated
- What has to be considered for the technical implementation
- Things to know about readability and code size
- How to achieve process reliability during direct marking
In order to use the time in the home office as profitably as possible, FOBA offers a series of webinars in April, May and June. Customers and interested parties will then also receive detailed information on laser marking with a focus on UDI labeling of medical devices in accordance with the requirements of the MDR.
New webinars will continuously be added. More information about FOBA’s webinars and regular updates can be found here.
