Do you want AccessGUDID data in tables that can be easily linked? Or do you want to export your search results as full records that include all fields?
When downloading the full data set or exporting your search results, choose the delimited text file option. These text files can be imported into Excel for easy viewing. They can also be imported into Access, Oracle, MySQL, or another relational database application, where you can link these tables to easily query and manipulate the data. Detailed instructions are available here. Bulk import scripts for Oracle and MySQL are also available.

For more information on GUDID Data Elements, please see the GUDID Data Elements Reference Table. Please download the updated schema. This data element will soon be available under AccessGUDID search as well.

Due to data errors, the Full Release file for the month of October has been removed. An updated file will be available on Monday, November 2, 2015. We apologize for the inconvenience.
Two new APIs and a new download are now available:
- The Lookup API returns all AccessGUDID fields for a single device record.
- The Implantable API and Implantable Download return a list of implantable devices that have been submitted to AccessGUDID. The API was developed specifically to meet the Implantable Device List specifications in the ONC EHR Certification and CMS MU3 Final Rules.
These new features are available in beta release for a brief user testing period before their full release. We encourage you to test them out and share your feedback. Visit the API Documentation page to find out more!

Update 8/19/2015 - GUDID functionality has been restored and a new full release is available
The FDA identified a security vulnerability in GUDID, and decided to take that system offline until a patch is implemented. We do not expect full GUDID functionality to be available until at least August 20, 2015. However, the Pre-production & Production system HL7 SPL submission option has been restored. We will provide updates via the FDA UDI website and through GovDelivery notifications.
No database release files will be posted to AccessGUDID while GUDID is offline. The next downloadable file will be available after GUDID’s full functionality has been restored and will be a full release.
