FDA Launches AccessGUDID to Identify Medical Devices in US

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) recently launched AccessGUDID, which provides public access to data on devices with unique device identifiers (UDI). The Global Unique Device Identification Database (GUDID) was designed to identify medical devices during distribution and use, and is being phased in over the next few years. Device manufacturers must include a UDI on device labels and submit the information to AccessGUDID. The database will provide information about medical devices, including safety while undergoing specific medical tests. Read more on the FDA’s UID page.
