State of Medical Device Labeling as we Enter 2018 [Video]

by Maureen Perroni, on December 19, 2017

Welcome back to the Loftware blog. We're continuing our dive into the state of enterprise labeling as 2017 ends and 2018 gets underway.

Today, we're focusing on medical device labeling and the progress of the Unique Device Identification Rule in the U.S.

UDI labeling has passed a few milestones. With Class Two and Class Three devices now requiring UDI labels, manufacturers are improving the quality and accuracy of their data collection and storage. Next, they plan to meet the Class One compliance deadline in 2020. 

Moving to this new level of compliance will be a challenge, as the Class I devices requiring attention are ubiquitous and low-risk items, such as dental floss.

Thanks for watching, and come back soon for more insights on the state of Enterprise Labeling.
