EDMA classification for in vitro diagnostics

The product classification of the European Diagnostic Manufacturers Association (EDMA) is used to code in vitro diagnostic medical devices.

The names and codes provided by DIMDI originate from older classification versions. If necessary, DIMDI provides these as files.

GMDN - Global Medical Device Nomenclature

The English GMDN has been developed by the European Standards body CEN under a project sponsored by the European Commission. GMDN is supposed to be translated into the major languages of EU-Member States.

Until a German translation of GMDN will be available UMDNS and EDMA classification are the official nomenclatures to be used in Germany. See the GMDN website for further information.
