Announcing Five New Unique Device Identification (UDI) Education Modules

Today, the Food and Drug Administration posted five new medical device education modules to the CDRH Learn Program website. The CDRH Learn website has also been improved to allow easier navigation of the Unique Device Identification (UDI) System section.
What is CDRH Learn?
CDRH Learn is an innovative multimedia catalog of online educational modules intended to provide information about medical device laws, regulations, and policies that is comprehensive, interactive, and easily accessible. The format for each topic is chosen to present the information in the most effective way possible.
What is Unique Device Identification (UDI)?
FDA is establishing a unique device identification system to adequately identify medical devices through their distribution and use. The Unique Device Identification (UDI) rule became final in September 2013 and is being phased in over several years based primarily on device classification. When fully implemented, the UDI System will offer a range of benefits to industry, FDA, consumers, health care providers and health care systems including improved patient safety and postmarket surveillance.
