As you are aware, there is a move to have greater traceability and identification for all medical instruments and as such there is a system called Global Medical Device Nomenclature, which allocates specific numbers to every family of medical instrument. This is gaining world-wide recognition and fast becoming a requirement when you purchase or sell medical instruments or need to register the instruments with your Medical Device Authority.
Nova believe this is a very important measure and have allocated all relevant hand instruments with their respective GMDN number. If you require the GMDN numbers for the products you purchase then please let us know and we will send them to you. If you have any questions regarding GMDN then please contact us.
