Global Unique Identification Database (GUDID)

Global Unique Identification Database (GUDID)

Regulations issued by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) in 2013 established the UDI (Unique Device Identification) rule, based on the different types of medical devices. In essence, this system set rules in place for structured product labeling and data submission to the Global Unique Identification Database (GUDID). Depending on the classification of the medical device (class III, as well as implantable, life sustaining, and life supporting), the codes required differ. Yet, the labels must be in plain text with automatic identification and capture technology. In short, the GUDID serves as a reference catalog for every device with a UDI. Characteristics about each device are included and referenced by the item code given by the labeler.

HAL Traxx Software

The advanced technology of HAL Traxx Solutions equips businesses for supreme inventory management capability, minus the hefty cost. To meet requirements as specified by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) in relation to the UDI (Unique Device Identification) rule, HAL Traxx Software generates a .zpl code for printing and barcode labels and RDIF (Radio Frequency Identification) tags with readable text to label medical devices based on classification. Each device is identified by a DI (Device Identifier) and established with an item code. To track production, production identifiers (PI) are assigned a master unit number along with a lot/batch number, date code, serial number, and identification code. The master unit number and RDIF tags are used to track items. Shipping is also tracked by way of the UDI. User, date, and time create a permanent record of every transaction. Finally, information required is submitted to GUDID as an .xml file and communicated through interface systems.
