Global UDI Compliance

Manage and exchange accurate regulatory data for global compliance and patient safety

The Challenge

Accurate management of product data is critical in healthcare and life sciences because the data associated with these products has a direct impact on human health, patient safety, and the availability of regulated medical devices.

This is why regulatory requirements for Unique Device Identification (UDI) and compliance are so stringent.

In the United States, the Food & Drug Administration (FDA) has set the UDI standards and established a database called the Global Unique Device Identification Database (GUDID).  This allows medical device manufacturers to register their products to ensure their compliance with the UDI standards.  In the European Union, the European Commission has defined the UDI standard, known as the Medical Device Regulation (MDR), and established a database called EUDAMED.  Similar to GUDID, this database allows medical device manufacturers to register their products to ensure their compliance with the standards of MDR UDI.

These regional and country-specific regulations are constantly evolving, and there are rapidly approaching deadlines that must be met long before they take effect.  There are an estimated 10-15 regulatory agencies releasing new UDI requirements over the next five years!

Global medical device manufacturers are required to submit UDI data to a variety of country-specific regulators, each with their own standards and data sharing requirements, and it remains difficult to manage and share accurate regulatory data due to:

  • Evolving Global Requirements: Harmonizing data across different regions of the world adds cost and effort for medical device providers as the regulatory environment continues to change and the various global standards become significantly more complex.
  • Multiple Country Standards: Each country is developing its own standards and guidelines for tracking and monitoring medical devices (EU, UK, China, South Korea, Saudi Arabia, and Australia).
  • Single Source of Accurate Data: Clean up all your regulatory data in one centralized solution to ensure validated and up-to-date information for new product launches and give your company a competitive edge.
  • Patient Safety: Ensure safe, accurate, and rapid product recalls by fully communicating product registration data to ensure patient safety.

An additional challenge is continuous maintainability when staff and resource changes occur, resulting in loss of business knowledge and skills related to all aspects of UDI. 

The Solution

We understand the complexity of managing and sharing validated regulatory data required to meet ever-changing global regulatory compliance deadlines and the commercial needs of healthcare providers.
