Global UDI and Master Data Forum 2020

Berlin, Germany

New date: 11-12 November, 2020

Achieve Global UDI Compliance and Effective Master Data Management

Complying with international requirements and standards to ensure global UDI compliance is a key challenge for medical device manufacturers. Contending with changing deadlines and often ambiguous guidelines, manufacturers are looking for clarity from regulators on what exactly is required of them.

EUDAMED may have been delayed, but successful master data management with a view to global UDI compliance is still a truly enormous task. To have any hope of meeting the updated timelines, it is essential to have an effective master data strategy; however, building and maintaining a database that is not only capable of cleansing and validating UDI data but can also submit to numerous international datapools, is often easier said than done.

The Global UDI and Master Data Forum seeks to help provide answers to many of these challenges by uniting all key stakeholders. Join us next April to hear directly from healthcare providers, notified bodies and medical device manufacturers as they work together to achieve global UDI compliance and effective master data management

What Will be Covered?

  • Global UDI regulatory updates
  • UDI requirements and timelines around the world
  • Master data management approaches and case studies
  • Global harmonisation efforts
  • Practical case studies and lessons from manufacturer UDI projects
  • Data standards and interoperability (GS1 and GDSN, GMDN, HIBCC, ICCBBA, SNOMED, HL7)
  • Hospital UDI experiences and how to best leverage the data

Who is The Forum For?

    - UDI Project leaders & members
    - Regulatory Affairs
    - Quality
    - Labelling & packaging
    - IT

Join us to:

  • Build your master data strategy to enable global compliance
  • Hear from healthcare providers; learn how they use UDI, their challenges with UDI implementation as well as how medical device manufacturers can help
  • Update your understanding of the global regulatory landscape, by benchmarking against competitors and hearing directly from notified bodies
