The UDI rule is final. Think you're ready? Think again, because UDI is mandating changes that will hit your entire organization.

Register Today

Less than a year from now, all class III devicemakers will have to comply with FDA's new UDI rule. Deadlines for other device classes follow in lockstep.

That may sound like plenty of time. It isn't.

This single requirement stretches across the entire operation, from creating adequate production and device identifier systems to labeling, marketing, packaging and adverse event reporting. Devicemakers need to identify as many as 55 data elements just to generate a UDI. It's not simple.

Every change will also have to be incorporated in the SOPs and all employees trained.

Hospitals and purchasers are already updating their systems — and they'll expect the companies they buy from to be ready, too.

In just one fast-paced day, attendees will hear from five of the top experts on UDI, including the man who wrote the rule; an early-adopter who's implemented UDI and can tell attendees mistakes to avoid; a healthcare provider who can tell attendees exactly what their needs are; and consultants who are working with companies to implement UDI. The lineup includes:

 

  • Jay Crowley, Senior Advisor for Patient Safety, CDRH, FDA
  • Jackie Rae Elkin, Global Process Owner, Medtronic
  • Rosalind Parkinson, Chief Supply Chain Officer, The Ohio State University, Wexner Medical Center
  • Dan O'Leary, President, Ombu Enterprises LLC
  • Donald Guthner, Principal, Orgenix, LLC

The virtual conference is convenient to attend. All that's required is that attendees be in front of a computer screen at the appointed time, whether they at the office or telecommuting from their office-in-home.

Of course, the panel of experts will be on hand to answer questions. Simply submit questions via email, and they will be answered by the time the session ends.

Everyone in with a role in product development, legal and regulatory affairs will benefit from taking part in this event — and they can do so at a cost that won't break the budget. Companies pay a single low registration fee per line, regardless of how many participate. So spread the word.
