Benefits of Membership

Membership will give you a licence to access the GMDN Database which currently has over 24,000 Term Names that group your medical device products.

All the GMDN Term Names and Definitions are available to all users and when the appropriate one has been found the related GMDN Code can be revealed and used.

Depending on the membership type selected, additional features are available to the user. Some features are only available to certain qualified organisations.


We provide an advance search tool, the ‘Explorer’ to help you identify the relevant GMDN Term by using a clinical hierarchy.

My Terms

The ‘My Terms’ list remembers the GMDN Terms of interest to you. We monitor these terms and let you know if their status changes, for example if the description is no longer appropriate and we need to make the Term obsolete.


We provide a monthly newsletter that provides status updates on your GMDN Terms and you can also opt for an email alert too.

Enquiry Service

If you are a medical device innovator we provide a free ‘Enquiry’ service to help you find the right GMDN Term for your product.

Multi-User Accounts

Users can create multiple user accounts and provide different access rights to their staff.

My Terms Export

Users with ‘My Terms’ function can export a list of their terms in a spreadsheet format.

Data Download

Large users of GMDN data, such as governments and hospitals, can download the complete GMDN Term set.

The GMDN Agency is a public charity and we only charge fees to cover our costs.
