WHY US FDA?
Any non US manufacturer of medical devices who wants to place his device in US market isrequired to register his facility and to list his products with US Food and drug administration before exporting to US.
Before registration and listing his product he must obtain 510 K clearances for his devices (if applicable).
ROUTE OF PLACING MEDICAL DEVICE IN US MARKET
The applicant may market the device only after :
a) Appoint a US Agent.
b) Obtaining a 510(k) approval (if applicable)
c) Registration and listing the device with FDA
After successful Registration & listing, you have to comply with FDA regulation (as applicable) as your facility shall be subjected to FDA compliance inspection at any time.
WHAT IS 510 (k) ?
- A 510(k) is a premarket compliance 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.
- Each person who wants to market in U.S., a medical device (Class I, II, and III device, depending on the level of risk they pose to patients and users.) , for which a Premarket Approval (PMA) is not needed, must subject a 510(k) to FDA unless the device is exempt from 510(k) requirements.
- There is no 510(k) form; however, 21 CFR 807 Sub part E describes requirements for a 510(k) submission.
- All 510(k) applications must be proposed to the FDA at most 90 days prior to development in US.
WHEN A 510(K) IS REQUIRED
- Introducing a device into marketing, for the first time.
- When suggesting a different intended use for a device which you not yet have in commercial distribution.
- There is a modification or change of a legally marketed device and that change could importantly affect its safety or effectiveness.
- If your devices does not fall in class I and class II 510 K exempt devices.
