Manufacturers EMDN Service updated

15 January 2023

The list of EMDN terms used in the service now includes a match for GMDN Terms for IVDs.

If you are a manufacturer that needs an EMDN Code for registering a product in the EC EUDAMED database, you may find our EMDN Service useful to get a ‘best match’ suggestion for GMDN codes.
The EMDN Service provides GMDN members with a Manufacturers ‘paid-for’ account an EMDN Code for each GMDN Code listed in their ‘My Terms’.
The ‘EMDN’ button will provide a table with a one-to-one ‘best match’ suggestion. This service does come with a warning that all EMDN Codes should be carefully reviewed before submission to EUDAMED.
A full set of EMDN Terms can be downloaded from the European Commission website:
The EMDN terms are updated on an irregular basis and users are advised to regularly check the latest EMDN version available and the correct term is assigned to their products.
Our latest version of the EMDN Service will be updated when resources become available.
Please note that EMDN terms are drafted more widely than GMDN Terms, so one EMDN term is likely to cover numerous types of medical device, and products falling within different GMDN Terms may be covered by the same EMDN term.
The GMDN Agency has no responsibility or liability to you for use of any EMDN term that is identified by this service – it remains your responsibility to ensure you use the most appropriate EMDN term for the relevant medical device. For further assistance please contact the GMDN Agency.
