Synonym terms The synonym term is the common use or a familiar name used in the nomenclature. Prior to the GMDN, many nomenclature systems existed, all built upon different structures, and used locally or nationally for diverse purposes and with unusual approaches. It is important for readers to understand that this range of codes should not be used for any kind of official purpose, for example, as temporary codes, as national translated synonyms, or where the data is exchanged between users outside of the local data system.

It divides the entire medical device gmnd market into the highest-level groups based on device application, technology, or other common characteristics. The arrangement will enhance the application of care to individual patients for medical device, patient risk and safety use cases.

By adopting the Codde, Health Canada will be in a better position to fulfill its mission to help Canadians maintain and improve their health, since better quality information will be available to Canadian health authorities, health care providers, manufacturers, and Canadians.

Although the GMDN has been designed and developed for regulatory data exchange in areas such as vigilance reporting and tracking of medical device safety, there is a need for a set of terms that are more refined than the GMDN category terms, yet broader than lisy GMDN generic device group terms, to be used in the application cpde the medical device directives; the use of collective terms satisfies this requirement.

Such codes will be consistent so that all translated versions of the nomenclature will carry an identical code for each generic or other term as specified in the GMDN. Subsequently symbols, coding, and proposed nomenclature were developed by USA workgroups in and ; there was a CEN recommendation for an interim nomenclature system.

Each preferred term has an associated definition that describes the most prominent characteristic of the device types in the group [typically includes a physical description and an intended use s ].

The GMDN term is in the form of a 5-digit numeric GMDN Code cross-referenced to a specific Term Name and Definition, with which all specific medical devices having substantially similar generic features, can be identified. To summarize, we can say that after adopting the GMDN concept lizt may be. Codes received from manufacturers will be subjected to review prior to being added to the internal database.

To be used to identify the range of skills and general technological abilities for which a Notified Body has been approved, and is so appointed by the relevant Competent Authority.

The advent of the European directives, initiated a new era, where national and indeed international bodies were given the opportunity to cooperate and harmonize their efforts in achieving the one thing that they all needed, namely, a standardized method of identifying the products placed in the global lost.
