FDA Lot Code format requirements

Good Afternoon,

Is anyone aware if the FDA has any special lot code format requirements? Currently our lot codes include a few special characters (-hyphen and +plus). We use an app called UDI Check to check our barcodes, it's a really useful app.

Our lot codes with the special characters come back with an error message and when I spoke to the creators of the App they told me that it's the FDAs system that can't read the barcode because the +sign tells the FDA there is more information to follow and it was recommended that we remove the special characters from our lot code.

I was wondering if anyone has heard of that before, or is aware of any particular FDA lot code format requirements.

Thank you
