The topic of our first UDI Talks is:
UDI and MDR: What do I have to implement by when? How do I organize the implementation according to the regulations? From gap assessment to the current postponement of the MDR transition deadlines
Your hosts Christian Söhner (FOBA Laser) and Michael Galliker (Regulatory Globe) will discuss:
- how companies can approach the implementation of the UDI according to the MDR (keyword "gap assessment")
- the relevant MDR regulations for direct part marking
- possible adjustments to the deadlines due to the latest MDR postponement
- the technical options for a UDI direct marking
April 29, 2:30 PM–3:00 PM (EDT)

In 2018, the sales of lasers has reached a peak value of 13.5 billion dollars across all markets and is expected to get closer to 19 billion dollars by the end of 2019. Laser technology is utilized in different market segments ranging from communication to medical with the single largest market being material processing. Material processing which includes welding, cutting and laser marking represents surprisingly close to 30% of the total laser market.
Laser marking plays a key role in the decoration of products and the traceability of manufactured components. We will review how and why laser technology when applied to marking or ablation processes plays a successful role in the implementation of innovative solutions. Solutions that apply to several market segments like the decoration of automotive interiors and the traceability and the fight against counterfeited manufactured plastic parts.
Unfortunately, with the large variety of plastic materials available in the market, not all plastics will react accordingly to lasers. To overcome these limitations, over the past few years, plastic manufacturers have joined efforts with laser manufacturers to address these challenges with spectacular results. We will present some of these results on plastic marking an ablation using different plastics and laser technologies.

With the UDI system (Unique Device Identification) manufacturers are obliged to identify and register medical devices. In the EU, the UDI is regulated within the framework of the MDR (Medical Device Regulation). In the USA, the FDA is authoritative. Seamless product tracking, less product piracy and highest patient safety are the goals. The challenges for manufacturers and marketers are no less demanding. Although already in place for the US, the implementation of the MDR for the European market is often still unclear. Due to the Corona pandemic, the official start date for the EU has now been changed from 26 May 2020 to 2021.
We bring you up to date on the current status of UDI direct marking of medical devices and give an overview of the UDI system according to MDR and FDA.
- Why the UDI code is much more than a label and should not be underestimated
- What has to be considered for the technical implementation
- Things to know about readability and code size
- How to achieve process reliability during direct marking
