Are You Navigating Global UDI Compliance?

Are You Navigating Global UDI Compliance?
If so, you won't won't want to miss this year’s European UDI Forum, taking place in Brussels, April 24-25. Loftware will be a sponsor at this year's event, which provides an opportunity for leaders from medical devices organizations around the globe to come together and discuss how the European UDI regulations will impact their business.

The event, which will include an expert speaker's panel and full topic sessions, will analyze elements of the legislation in greater detail and help organizations understand what steps they need to take to comply to these regulations, as well as others that will follow across the globe in the near future.

Having supported many organizations with US FDA UDI compliance, Loftware has a wealth of experience that we will be bringing to the debate. Our solutions are designed to support organizations in achieving global compliance and our team regularly works with organizations to ensure artwork and labeling meet the stringent requirements required in this highly validated space.

As well as exhibiting at the event, Loftware will also be hosting a roundtable discussion on the first day of the event that will focus on the important role of Enterprise Labeling in helping to ensure regulatory compliance in the medical device space.

If you plan on attending the event and are interested in scheduling a time to meet with one of Loftware's medical device labeling experts, contact Ray Collia - our host for the roundtable discussion - to schedule an appointment or feel free to stop by our booth. Ray is a labeling and traceability specialist with over 25 years of experience supporting organizations with their label and artwork management requirements across their manufacturing operations, distribution network and supply chain.

In the meantime, check out our white paper, co-written with Jay Crawley, VP of UDI Services and Solutions at USDM Life Sciences, titled ‘Navigating Global UDI Requirements: How Enterprise Labeling Helps Sustain Compliance and Optimize the Supply Chain'. The paper offers valuable insight aimed at helping you better understand medical device regulations and the value that a robust, scaleable and centralized labeling solution can deliver.
