On the agenda:

• Requirements of a GUDID submission system
• Process steps in selecting/launching a GUDID system and making submissions
• Data Fields – including those that are problematic
• Data Cleaning, Harmonization, and Validation tips
• Update on FDA’s changing GUDID Guidance, e.g., convenience kits, Class II Implants
• Lessons learned in setting up a FDA GUDID account and maintaining a record
• Live Questions and Answers

Reed Tech will lay out your submission options and explain how to make submissions to the Global Unique Device Identification Database (GUDID) before your compliance date.
