FDA has updated this guidance to include FDA’s compliance policy regarding Global Unique Device Identification Database (GUDID) submission requirements for certain class I devices considered consumer health products.

Additionally, FDA does not intend to enforce the GUDID submission requirements under 21 CFR 830.300 for class I and unclassified devices, other than implantable, life-supporting, or life-sustaining (I/LS/LS) devices, regardless of whether they are consumer health products, before December 8, 2022 (an additional 75 calendar days).
