The FDA’s ruling requiring UDI’s (Unique Device Identifiers) to be assigned to medical devices and their related packaging will enhance patient safety through increased protection from counterfeit devices. The ability to identify a device, even when it has been separated from its packaging, will make it much easier to link the product to its original manufacturer in the event of problems. For some manufacturers, the ruling could have implications across manufacturing processes, from the materials used to produce a label right through to the verification of the information printed to it. With several decades supporting manufacturers and suppliers to the medical and healthcare, Weber can offer expert guidance on label materials, label design and production and the selection of the most appropriate coding method.
