It has been over a year since the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) required that class III devices were to be labeled with Unique Device Identification (UDI). Despite the common sentiment that labeling regulation can cause a great deal of reorganization and work, the packaging label is valuable. If you already have a packaging string built into your Item Master, you simply associate each UDI with that packaging string. The UDI for a 4by4 will have a different number for the package, box, and case. Use of this information within the Item Master ensures orders will transact utilizing the correct UDI with the associated product.
