It is used by governments, manufacturers and hospitals to name and sort medical devices and improve the management of medical device information, including compliance with safety regulations, as used by the MHRA and US FDA for device identification and patient safety. The GMDN is maintained and managed by the GMDN Agency and distributed to users through an internet-based database. It is currently enjoying a rapid world-wide take-up of use, due to new internationally-coordinated regulatory harmonisation and marketing requirements.

  • GMDN design, structure and term development methodologies and use of the on-line database application.
