The Med­ical Device Coor­di­na­tion Group (MDCG) has issued anoth­er guid­ance doc­u­ment. MDCG 2021-10 ref­er­ences cer­tain prin­ci­ples and ter­mi­nol­o­gy used in appen­dices E – I of the IMDRF N48 guid­ance doc­u­ment on Unique Device Iden­ti­fi­ca­tion (UDI) systems.

The doc­u­ment states that there are prin­ci­ples and ter­mi­nol­o­gy that are not ful­ly aligned with Reg­u­la­tions (EU) 2017/745 and 2017/746 on med­ical devices and in vit­ro diag­nos­tic med­ical devices (MDR and IVDR). MDCG 2021-10 intends to pro­vide clar­i­ty in that regard and includes a use­ful table that maps the con­cerned prin­ci­ples and terms.

Should you require the doc­u­ment, please don’t hes­i­tate to get in touch.
