News Jun 02, 2016
With the imminent publication of the new Medical Device Regulations (MDR) taking shape in Europe, Unique Device Identification (UDI) is quickly becoming a requirement for all medical devices.

Mr. Cottrell comments: “Despite the upfront costs required to implement UDI, when implemented properly, manufacturers will be well positioned to reap long-term benefits, including influencing their bottom line, particularly if they ensure they are meeting compliance standards early on in the implementation process. The risk of lost sales and a damaged reputation isn’t worth the risk of delayed compliance.” Ms. Tomes remarks: “Medical device manufacturers who understand that UDI is more than just a regulatory compliance process with deadlines, but rather, an expansive measure toward global regulatory harmonization, will benefit the most from implementing the specific requirements.”
