MDR Compliant Solution


To meet the European Medical Device Regulation (MDR), which replaced the Medical Devices Directive (93/42/EEC) and Active Implantable Medical Devices Directive (90/385/EEC), medical devices must carry a unique device identifier (UDI). The regulations have been introduced to improve patient safety, product quality and traceability accuracy. With an MDR compliant solution in place, medical devices can be tracked throughout the supply chain.
