EU Medical Devices Nomenclature is now available

The European Commission has recently made available the latest advancements on the Medical Device nomenclature under the new European Regulations on Medical Devices.

To meet MDR and IVDR requirements, the Commission is required to make available a Medical Device nomenclature to support the functioning of the future Eudamed. Having due regard to the views provided by the Medical Device Coordination Group (MDCG), the Italian CND (Classificazione Nazionale dei Dispositivi medici) codes will be mapped to GMDN codes for ease of use by stakeholders and other entities utilizing Eudamed.

The correspondence between the nomenclatures will be visible to operators and incorporated in the future database. This will allow all operators registering their device to find CND nomenclature equivalent to a GMDN code.
