Product Packaging

CLEAR IDENTIFICATION AND SCANNING



Product packaging that is UDI-compliant, makes it easy to track a product from the manufacturing site to its use at a patient’s bedside. Barcodes in linear and 2D formats allow for easy scanning at most packaging levels.

UDI Compliant Labels

Smiths Medical meets global UDI Compliance standards on our labels in 3 ways:

  • Standardized date format in YYYY-MM-DD
  • Device identification that includes:
    • GTIN – a fixed, product identifier
    • Variable production identifiers
  • Plain text and barcode formats

GTINs

Global Trade Identification Numbers (GTINs) are a crucial part of the UDI system. These unique 14-digit numbers are required on device labeling and packaging (except in special cases of exemption). The GTIN appears in the first portion of the Device Identifier (DI) (for example: (01) 12345678912345).
