FDI Device Package Registrations will be accepted provided the device (device type, device revision) is already Compliance Registered.

  • A manufacturer may submit a device and FDI Device Package for registration simultaneously. 
  • Devices are tested first, if it meets the requirements for registration the FDI Device Package is tested.

 

FDI Device Package Revisions will be accepted for Registration in the FDI Device Package Library provided that an FDI Device Package for that device type and device revision is already registered.

  • Updates made to FDI Device Packages must comply with the individual protocol compatibility rules. 
  • Any revision that would indicate a firmware change to the device will fail FDI Device Package registration. The device revision number must increase.  The device must be tested and registered before the FDI Package is submitted.
