GMDN Membership for Manufacturers (including Authorized Representative/Distributor Bodies)
Membership - Licence Details:
For the purpose of this schedule, the following definition applies:
“Manufacturer” is an organisation that manufactures and/or supplies medical devices.
Schedule ‘B’ Members will be able to access the GMDN database within which there are
at present approximately 19,000 generic terms. This includes some 9,000 “Preferred Terms” with full
definitions and these ‘P’ terms are those under which devices should be identified for regulatory
purposes. There are also approximately 1000 ‘CT’ terms (Collective Terms) which provide multiple links
for search processes, based on common features and applications. These ‘CT’ terms will form part of
the new GMDN “Navigator” system. The remaining 10,000 terms include ‘T’ terms which are
“Template Terms” and ‘S’ terms which are “Synonym Terms”, both of which provide
valuable search information to locate the appropriate ‘P’ term to be used. When the correct ‘P’ term
has been identified the appropriate code (5 digits) can be obtained using the “User Access” process.
Specific Licence Restrictions
This GMDN Membership gives the Member the right to access and use the GMDN Database, based on the
