  • Definition of UDI


    Unique Device Identification (UDI) is the identification given to a medical device throughout its life cycle, and is the only “identity card” in the product supply chain. The global adoption of a unified and standard UDI is conducive to improving the transparency and operational efficiency of the supply chain, to information sharing and exchange, to monitoring of adverse events and recall of defective products, and to improving the quality of medical services and ensuring the patient safety.
