What is The Difference Between Complex Systems and Convenience Kits?

A convenience kit is one or more devices put together for the convenience of the user. An example of a convenience kit would be a suture removal kit. The FDA has published draft guidance that further clarifies the definition of convenience kit to limit it to those situations where everything is kept together. A configurable system is multiple devices that come together to create multiple pieces of a system that come together to create a finished product. A configurable system, has one or more available components or subsystems that a user can choose. The components come together at the point of installation to create the finished device. The convenience kit has a group of already finished devices that come together to create yet a different finished device, a configurable system is a finished device, so there are various ways to assign UDI to configurable systems, understanding both the intent and the letter of the UDI rule.
