Preparing Data for EUDAMED: A Virtual Panel

Medical Device, Medical Device Safety and Regulation, Medical Device Manufacturing & Supply Chain,
  • Thursday, October 21, 2021

Register for this webinar for a virtual panel discussion of some of the critical questions being asked about medical device requirements for global health authorities with special emphasis on EU EUDAMED. The panel will discuss topics like:

  • What should I know about existing CE marking and future requirements?
  • For IVDR, who decides what class a product falls into and can I ‘self-certify’ under the IVDR?
  • Are there some products that have resulted in reclassification to a ‘higher class’ for EU-MDR, what are some examples?
  • When the UDI/Device Registration Module opens, will EUDAMED already be populated with existing ‘Directive’ device info? If I participate in the voluntary period, does that count as an ‘official’ submission or do I re-submit when EUDAMED goes live?
  • For EUDAMED device registration, what is the difference between Regulation and Legacy requirements?
  • What Quality Management changes need to occur to comply with MDR/IVDR?
  • What are the main differences between GMDN and EMDN? Is mapping available between the two standards?

Bring your questions. We will also review the global regulatory health authorities and their timelines for requirements.

Mark Wasmuth - CEO, The GMDN Agency

The Global Medical Device Nomenclature (GMDN) is a list of generic names used to identify all medical device products. Such products include those used in the diagnosis, prevention, monitoring, treatment or alleviation of disease or injury in humans.

The main purpose of the GMDN is to provide health authorities and regulators, health care providers, manufacturers and others with a naming system that can be used to exchange medical device information and support patient safety.

The GMDN is used for:

  • Data exchange between manufacturers, regulators and healthcare authorities
  • Exchange and analysis of market surveillance and vigilance information
  • Supporting inventory control in hospitals
  • Purchasing and supply chain management
