The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) extended the Global Unique Device Identification Database (GUDID) submission compliance date for all labelers required to submit data to the GUDID by September 24, 2015 to October 24, 2015. The extension is the result of GUDID security vulnerability issues that have caused FDA to temporarily take the GUDID offline. Those affected by this extension include:
- Labelers of class II, class I, and undefined implantable, life-supporting, and life-sustaining devices
- Labelers of contact and intraocular lenses
The one-month extension applies only to GUDID data submissions. Affected devices and their packaging must still be labeled with a Unique Device Identifier (UDI) by September 24, 2015. See Registrar Corp’s recently published guide to complying with FDA UDI requirements for more information.
