Recently, the Food and Drug Administration released final guidance concerning the labeling of medical devices that are distributed for use in the United States. This guidance requires a Unique Device Identification (UDI) label to be affixed to each of these devices.

The UDI label contains several pieces of information that will lead to a higher quality of information, a reduction in errors and more accurate reporting in the medical field. Arbour Group's experienced professionals are extensively trained to evaluate a client's readiness as well as assist with UDI Compliance.

Unique Device Identification (UDI) number consists of the following components:

The Device Identifier (DI): a fixed portion of the UDI that serves as a device identifier and also gives the labeler and the specific model and version of the device.

The Production Identifier (PI): a variable portion of the UDI that identifies the following information when included on a device's label:

  • The lot or batch number of manufacture
  • The serial number of the device
  • The date of manufacture
  • The expiration date of the device
  • Any distinct identification code required by §1271.290(c) for the device
