Novation Submits Comments to FDA in support of Unique Device Identification Rule
Date:11/8/2012

ion of Class I devices sold in a retail setting is appropriate, nor in the best interest of patients. Novation believes that including a globally recognized UDI would lay the foundation for stability in the supply chain and additional patient safety enhancements in the future. 
  • Defining labeling requirements – Novation believes requirements should be in line with the best practices of the retail world. All products that reasonably can include a bar code should include a bar code. In instances where labeling the device isn't practical or is subject to an exemption, every effort should still be made to include a UDI on the packaging and device wrapper.
  • Adopting a global date format – Novation supports utilizing the ISO date standard for the UDI label so one label can be used globally for all product identification.
  • "Novation has been a leader in pushing for a unique device identifier standard, and we will continue to partner with the FDA and the hospital members we serve to maximize the benefits of a UDI system," continues Witter.
