Ensuring Precision and Compliance in Medical Device Labeling

Navigating the Landscape of Medical Device Labeling and UDI Compliance

Effective labeling and the use of the Unique Device Identification (UDI) system are critical components of medical device compliance and patient safety.


Standards such as ISO 15223-1 and the FDA’s 21 CFR 801 and 21 CFR 830 provide stringent guidelines for labeling and identification.


At MedLaunch, we specialize in navigating these complex requirements, ensuring that your medical devices are not only compliant but also clearly and accurately communicate essential information to users and stakeholders.

Deep Dive into ISO 15223-1 and 21 CFR 801 & 830

  • ISO 15223-1 Mastery: This standard provides a harmonized approach to medical device labeling, specifying symbols and terminology that can be universally understood. However, integrating these symbols into product labels and instructions for use (IFU) requires a nuanced understanding of both the standard and its application in diverse regulatory environments. MedLaunch excels in translating these requirements into actionable strategies, ensuring your labeling is not only compliant but also enhances user comprehension and safety.

  • 21 CFR 801 & 830 – A Closer Look: The FDA's regulations for labeling and UDI pose unique challenges, from determining the appropriate symbols and labeling content to managing the complexities of UDI integration into global distribution networks. MedLaunch's expertise shines in demystifying these regulations, offering solutions that align with your operational workflows and market objectives.

Mastering UDI Compliance for Global Traceability

The Unique Device Identification (UDI) system, as outlined in 21 CFR 830, is crucial for the traceability and post-market surveillance of medical devices. Implementing a UDI system involves understanding complex regulatory requirements and integrating them into your product labeling and data reporting processes.
