180212 UDI Workshop Brussels 3868A 960px

The European Commission and the manufacturers associations "Medtech Europe" and "COCIR" held their first international UDI workshop of 2018 at 12th of February just prior to the kick-off to the new work item "UDI Application Guide" of the International Medical Device Regulatory Forum (IMDRF).

The subject UDI (world-wide medical device and in-vitro diagnostica system to support tracking and tracing) was initiated by regulators, industries, coding agencies and hospitals. The many contributions from Asia, Europe and Nort/South Europe are allowing an universal overview of the world wide harmonization efforts.

HIBIScan allows to check and generate HIBC codes. The included batch wizard allows to create a set of codes in one run.

Next step of the UDI-registration wave: Beginning February 1, 2016, FDA will accept GUDID account requests from labelers of US class II devices. Manufacturers will be in the position to register this class of products after the personal account has been set up by FDA and acknowledged. The first step was to open the registration for class III devices.
