What is a Unique Device Identification in GS1 Terms?


UDI Barcode and Print requirements use the same GS1 AI structure and templates as serialization.

UDI has options: either serialized or non-serialized, and are considered compliant.

Reminders regarding the FDA Unique Device Identification Requirements for Medical Devices in the US:

Each UDI must be provided in a plain-text version and in a form that uses automatic identification and data capture (AIDC)

A UDI is a unique numeric or alphanumeric code that consists of two parts:

  • A Device Identifier (DI), a mandatory fixed portion of a UDI that identifies the labeler and specific version or model of a device, and
  • A Production Identifier (PI), a conditional variable portion of a UDI that identifies one or more of the following when included on the label of a device:
    • Lot, date, or batch number within which a device was manufactured
    • The serial number of a specific device
    • The expiration date of a specific device
    • The distinct id code required by §1271.290(c) for a human cell, tissue, or cellular and tissue-based product (HCT/P) regulated as a device
