Unique Device Identifiers for contact lenses:

The EU Commission has published a Delegated Regulation amending Regulation (EU) 2017/745 of the European Parliament and of the Council, as regards the assignment of Unique Device Identifiers for contact lenses.

In order to resolve implementation issue and allow a proportionate UDI-DI (the identifier specific to a manufacturer and a device) data entries in Eudamed, the “Master UDI-DI” has been developed by the Commission. Master UDI-DI is intended as the identifier of a group of highly individualised devices (i.e. contact lenses) presenting specific similarities with respect to defined clinically relevant parameters. In the future the Master UDI-DI solution could be extended to a other highly individualised devices.
