Eyewear Industry Specifics: US FDA Class I UDI Submissions

August 23, 2022 / 11am ET

Reed Tech Life Sciences will give a presentation on US FDA Class I UDI requirements and exceptions, focusing on eyewear industry specifics and guidance communicated by leadership at The Vision Council.

On Friday, July 22, 2022, the U.S Food and Drug Administration (FDA) issued their final guidance on GUDID exceptions for Class I ‘consumer health products.’

By the FDA’s regulations, any medical device subject to impact resistance testing is a ‘restricted device.’ Thus, all eyewear devices with lenses that are required to pass the drop ball test are considered restricted devices by the FDA (see chart below for specific coding). This means that Plano, or non-prescription sunglasses and OTC readers are not ‘consumer health products’ and will need to comply 100% with UDI – labeling (using UPC codes if you so choose) AND GUDID reporting.

Register to attend live or on-demand to learn more. The UDI submission date is now December 8, 2022.
