In order to place medical devices on the European market, medial device companies are required to comply with these new regulations, including the implementation of UDI. Product-specific UDI  have to be maintained and submitted to the European Database for Medical Devices (EUDAMED). Each medical device needs to be assigned to a Basic UDI-DI and needs an unique UDI-DI.
