Work with your preferred FDA-accredited issuing agency to assign and maintain UDIs. Currently, the FDA-accredited issuing agencies are GS1, HIBCC and ICCBBA. Identify or obtain your Labeler Dun and Bradstreet (DUNS) numbers.
If your company already has DUNS number(s), verify that the information is current and accurate in the D&B database.
If your company does not have DUNS number(s), obtain one free of charge from D&B. This may take up to 30 business days. Expedited options to obtain a DUNS number are available for a nominal fee.
