Health Industry Business Communications Council® ~Setting Safer Standards
HIBCC®, the Health Industry Business Communications Council, is an industry supported and internationally accredited nonprofit standards development organization with a global reach. We develop standards that meet the unique requirements of the world’s healthcare providers.
Our sole focus is setting safer standards for the healthcare industry. The medical field demands certain patient safety considerations, and our goal is to meet them by developing appropriate standards for information exchange and communication among all healthcare trading partners.
Our scope includes a wide variety of standards, from bar code labeling and Auto-ID to location identifiers and electronic commerce. In all cases we continue to emphasize “safety first”. Whether you’re here to create a bar code, learn more about Unique Device Identifiers (UDI), or to access the Health Industry Number (HIN) System, we are here to assist. Please contact us at 602.381.1091 with questions or if you need additional information.
HIBCC’s New UDI Utility

HIBCC’s ‘UDI Generator Utility’ allows users to create Unique Device Identifier (UDI) formats soon to be required by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA).
The FDA has identified the Health Industry Bar Code (HIBC) as an acceptable data standard for UDI. Currently, the draft FDA regulation requires a product identifier, as well as a labeler identifier, such as the HIBC Labeler Identification Code (LIC).
