Thank to Urban Biel on  twitter and this post  I just discovered an interesting (but not new) option for lspv command  :  -u ! (available for AIX 6.1 TL07 and  AIX 7.1 TL01), which displays the UDID and UUID of the physical device directly without scripting headaches :

            Lists all the physical volumes in the system along with the following information:

              *    Physical disk name.

              *    Physical volume identifiers (PVIDs).

              *    The volume group (if any), or label (if any), that the physical volume belongs to and that is locked with the lkdev command.

              *    The state of the volume group.


                          When the volume group is varied on.


                          When the volume group is varied on in the concurrent mode.


                          When the physical volume is locked with the lkdev command.

              *    Unique device identifier (UDID).

              *    Universally Unique Identifier (UUID).

Small reminder :

The Unique device identifier (UDID) is the unique_id attribute from the ODM CuAt ObjectClass.

 The UDID is present for PowerPath, AIX MPIO, and some other devices. 

The Universally Unique Identifier (UUID) is present for AIX MPIO devices
