Optimize Medical Device Safety and Traceability with Intertek’s Expert UDI Solutions

At Intertek, we understand the critical importance of Unique Device Identification (UDI) in the medical device industry. Our comprehensive UDI compliance services are designed to ensure that your medical devices meet all regulatory requirements, enhancing safety and traceability throughout their lifecycle.

What is Unique Device Identification (UDI)?

Unique Device Identification (UDI) is a system used by manufacturers to mark and identify medical devices within the healthcare supply chain. Implemented by the FDA and other global regulatory bodies, the UDI system facilitates easier tracking of devices, enhances the effectiveness of device recalls, and improves patient safety. Each Unique Device Identifier (UDI) is a unique numeric or alphanumeric code that includes device-specific information which is essential for compliance with global regulations.

Why is UDI Compliance Crucial?

  • Enhanced Patient Safety: UDI helps in the precise identification of medical devices, leading to improved patient safety and reduced medical errors.
  • Efficient Recall Management: With UDI, manufacturers and healthcare providers can quickly and effectively manage device recalls.
  • Streamlined Regulatory Reporting: UDI simplifies the reporting process for adverse events and other regulatory obligations, making compliance more straightforward.
Unique Device Identifiers (UDI) are mandatory for medical devices and accessories in the U.S. and the EU. They can be found on the device and on packaging. Learn more with our 40-minute on-demand webinar.
