Please note this is an extract of the original bulletin.
The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) updated the fields released in the public AccessGUDID Database to include the field for Global Medical Device Nomenclature (GMDN) Code along with the status of the GMDN Code, Active or Obsolete.
These new fields are available in AccessGUDID and the openFDA Unique Device Identifier endpoint. This latest update is intended to provide the end user with enhanced search and retrieval capabilities for GUDID data.
Resources are available on the GMDN website to help labelers identify alternatives to the obsolete term codes.
If you have questions or need further assistance, please contact the FDA UDI Help Desk
