Industry Roundtable: UDI Compliance in an Evolving Regulatory Landscape

Industry Roundtable: UDI Compliance in an Evolving Regulatory Landscape

With Europe facing rapidly-approaching new UDI regulations, plans need to be put in place now in order to meet the deadlines, but the requirements from authorities are not yet clear, therefore manufacturers are unable to commit to costly projects. The question on medical device manufacturers’ minds is – what can we safely be doing right now, to best set ourselves up for the upcoming regulations?

In light of this, Pharma IQ moderated a roundtable conversation between three UDI experts, Tommy Røsholt, Contracting Project Manager for UDI compliance at Oticon, Tom Jones, UDI Program Director for Johnson & Johnson Supply Chain, and Jenny Young, Contact Project Manager MDR at Convatec.
