UDI requirements - Does a UDI expire?

Starting to get Involved
when you complete and submit an UDI application and has the UDI number... do you have to renew that application, the UDI number expires?

I can't say with 100% certainty, but I doubt it expires, I have seen nothing to indicate it does otherwise there is a risk it is duplicated and then it is no longer unique

Correct, once you get the Device Identification, GTIN, UDI number from the Issuing Agency - these are always the same and does not expire. However, you do need to pay for the service of getting DI/GTIN number so depending on your Issuing Agency, you may need to pay service to continue using. Honestly not sure about maintaining, but I believe once it is assigned to your organisation it is always in place.
