MedTech Europe leaflet for hospitals on UDI and implant card availability
Posted on 02.02.2022
MedTech Europe is keen to help healthcare professionals (surgeons, administrative staff of hospitals dealing with implants) to navigate in the new legislative environment and comply with the new requirements of the Medical Devices Regulation (EU) 2017/745 (MDR) impacting health institutions.
To that end, MedTech Europe developed an information leaflet that explains the transition timeline for when the Unique Device Identifier (UDI) information and the implant cards can be expected to be supplied with implantable medical devices under the MDR.
Are you a healthcare professional who works with implants? The leaflet summarises the new legal Unique Device Identifier (UDI) and the implant card obligations of health institutions.
Are you a supplier of implantable medical devices to hospitals? Use the MedTech Europe leaflet to let health institutions know when to expect to see Unique Device Identifiers (UDI) and the implant cards with implants!
