On 10.12.2019, the NMPA (National Medical Products Administration) kicked off the pilot phase of the online UDID (unique device identification database) for medical device enterprises. On 31.03.2020, the UDID was officially released to the public, allowing users to use the search tool, download, and data sharing features.
The search tool is easy for users to access and quickly search for product names, company names, or product UDI codes in the database. It also offers the advanced search feature to narrow down search results for complex searches. After entering a search for a certain UDI code, product name or company name, a list of relevant information will be available for download.
The latest UDI information of registered medical devices are displayed at the homepage of the website, and available for download in different batch formats: All, Monthly, Weekly, Daily, etc., and provides information about the date of creation, number of products, and file size.
Available for NMPA Legal Agents, business enterprises or medical institutes to connect through the API interface for data sharing.
How does the UDID impact medical device labelling and packaging?
The UDI code must be labelled for products manufactured on or from 1 October 2020 onwards.
Who is responsible for the submission of UDI data to NMPA? The NMPA Legal Agent, appointed by the overseas applicants, are responsible for the UDI data application and filing.
