Unique Device Identification system: Communications and stakeholder engagement
Involving health professionals, healthcare organisations, consumers and industry in the development and implementation of the UDI system is critical to its success. The TGA will engage and consult with stakeholders to ensure that all perspectives, particularly those of consumers who use medical devices, are taken into account. Public reporting by the TGA will ensure that progress towards implementing the UDI system is transparent to all.
Consultations and forums
The TGA will continue to undertake a series of consultations to inform the planning and design of the Australian implementation. Each consultation will be designed to cover key topic areas that we will need to consider as we progress with our planning. The consultations will be listed on our consultation forecast page and promoted via relevant communication channels including social media.
The consultation process may include consultation papers, stakeholder workshops, discussions and working groups.
We will use our established forums including the Regulatory and Technical Consultative Forum for medical devices (RegTech Forum).
