FDA Webinar: Global Unique Device Identification Database (GUDID): Account Set Up      

BACKGROUND: On September 24, 2013, the FDA released the final rule for the Unique Device Identification System requiring that the labels and packaging of most medical devices distributed in the United States bear a unique device identifier (UDI). As part of the UDI system, device labelers must submit data to the FDA-administered Global Unique Device Identification Database (GUDID), which will serve as a reference catalog for each device with a UDI. In addition, the FDA released a draft guidance, Global Unique Device Identification Database (GUDID) that provides information to labelers about what and how to submit data to the database. At this time, only labelers of currently marketed class III medical devices and devices licensed under the Public Health Service Act (PHS Act) may obtain a GUDID account and submit data to the GUDID.
