Next Upcoming Seminar: Implementing SQF 8.0 Systems – May 17-18, 2017

Specializing in FDA Regulatory Matters


Each person who wants to market in the U.S., a Class I, II, and III device intended for human use, for which a Premarket Approval (PMA) is not required, must submit a 510(k) to FDA unless the device is exempt from 510(k) requirements. A 510(K) is a premarket submission made to FDA to demonstrate that the device to be marketed is at least as safe and effective, that is, substantially equivalent, to a legally marketed device (21 CFR §807.92(a)(3)) that is not subject to premarket approval. FDA requires device manufacturers who must register, to notify FDA of their intent to market a 510(k) medical device at least 90 days in advance.
