Patient safety will be strengthened through the establishment of a Unique Device Identification (UDI) system for medical devices. The system is an Australian first. If used throughout the healthcare and supply chain systems, it will allow tracking and tracing of medical devices including those that have been implanted in patients. This will enhance the ability for doctors to notify patients quickly if there is a safety issue with a medical device.
Register for the AusUDID 'Sandpit'
The TGA is launching the 'Sandpit' version of the Australian UDI Database (AusUDID) from 4 July 2022. The Sandpit is being provided as an early release for users to provide feedback on the usability and design of the future AusUDID. It is open to all those who are interested in helping the TGA test the AusUDID and provide their feedback.
You are now encouraged to register to use the Sandpit at the UDI Sandpit registration page.
