With the clock ticking on the upcoming September 24, 2014 deadline for Unique Device Identification (UDI) requirements on class III medical devices, manufacturers need to be actively applying resources and building processes to reach UDI compliance. In order to ensure timely and accurate UDI implementation, device manufacturers must submit device data earlier than required to leave time to address any errors and avoid potential hurdles in the submission process.

Participants that will find this webinar most beneficial will be those involved in medical device companies.  Job titles of attendees that will be most applicable for this session will be:

  • Regulatory Affairs
