The Global Unique Device Identification Database (GUDID) data is now available on OpenFDA, FDA’s portal for publicly available data, at https://open.fda.gov/device/udi/. Making this data set available on OpenFDA allows public users to merge the GUDID device identification data with other FDA data sets. You will currently find an association from GUDID to FDA Classification data on OpenFDA, with plans to link to other FDA data sets in the future. The GUDID data set also continues to be available via search, download and APIs on AccessGUDID at http://accessGUDID.nlm.nih.gov hosted by the National Library of Medicine (NLM).
