    Thank you for all the information you are putting online for us newbies to learn from. It’s great!!
    I just followed this episode to get to know more about Eudamed and how we from the customers side can harvest information from it. I am employed in Central Norway Regional Health Authority who runs the hospitals in middle region of Norway. I’m currently working on mapping out wich of the products in use are MDR class 3 and enrich our database with necessarry data, like UDI-DI and PI, MDR klassification and manufactorer and manufactorers catalogue number/product number. Until now, I have been using accessGUDID (FDA’s database) to find info, but some of the products have different GTINs or are not in FDAs database at all. So my hope is that I can easily harvest data from EUDAMED – searching by manufaturers catalouge number and get the info I need. Is this possible for products that are allready registered? The best for me would be to download a spreedsheat (per manufacturer) with product name, cat.number, GTINs, MDR class and classifications (like GMDN). But this is maybe far to optimistic to hope for for a long time yet??
    Kind regards
