NeoMed Supports GEDSA’s U.S. ENFit® Connector Conversion Schedule

The Global Enteral Device Supplier Association (GEDSA) recently released an ENFit Connector Conversion Schedule which estab­lishes a time­line for member manu­fac­turers to phase out the manu­fac­ture of legacy feeding devices and tran­si­tion adapters.

GEDSA member manu­fac­turers have aligned to only produce ISO 80369-3 compliant devices with ENFit connec­tors according to the following time­lines:

NeoMed supports this patient safety initia­tive and encour­ages manu­fac­turers, health­care profes­sionals, hospital purchasing depart­ments and distrib­u­tors to use this schedule to coor­di­nate ENFit imple­men­ta­tion.

President Aaron Ingram remarked, “The ENFit Connector Conversion Schedule is a signif­i­cant step forward in the global effort to improve patient safety and clin­ical outcomes by reducing medical tubing miscon­nec­tions.”

Vice President of Business Development, Marc Waldman added, “GEDSA’s ENFit Connector Conversion Schedule is a helpful resource for customers to fore­cast and plan their ENFit tran­si­tion and for manu­fac­turers to ensure demands can be met without supply inter­rup­tions.”

As explained in the state­ment, GEDSA members will monitor the tran­si­tion through robust post market surveil­lance, following FDA guid­ance, and are prepared to adjust supply and product needs accord­ingly.
