                   Class I
                   General Controls

What are General Controls?
                                Establishment
   Basic authorities that       registration and device

Two Most Common Pathways to
Market in the U.S.
   Premarket Notification (PMN or 510(K))
       Safe and effective to a legally marketed (predicate) device
        through demonstration of substantial equivalence
       Class I, II, or III (pre-amendment)

   Premarket Approval (PMA)
       Demonstration of safety and effectiveness (supported by
        clinical data)
       Class III (new, high risk devices and no predicate device,
        new indications)

    The primary regulation that allows to conduct clinical
    trials using unapproved medical devices in the U.S.
    without complying with the FD&C Act is…
    the IDE or Investigational Device Exemption (21 CFR
    Part 812)

Use of Consensus Standards &
Guidance Documents
 CDRH Standards Program

  They are non-binding but very useful in
    streamlining the regulatory approval

Legal Import of Medical Devices
into the U.S. Market
Section 801(a) – (d) of the FD&C Act

 Subject to examination       Establishment
  by FDA even if the            Registration
  product is authorized for    Medical Device Listing
  marketing in another         Compliant Labeling
                               GMP/Quality Systems
 Devices must be safe
  and effective.               Appropriate Marketing

                                    PMA
 Imported products are
  required to meet the         Adverse Event Reporting,
  same standards as             Records/Complaint Files
  domestic goods.

   If a product is labeled, promoted or used in a manner defined in
    section 201(h) of the Federal Food Drug & Cosmetic (FD&C) Act,
    it will be regulated by the FDA as a medical device.

   USFDA CDRH’s regulatory paradigm is risk-based classification.
    The levels of regulatory control are based on the classification.
    Unless exempt, they require a premarket notification clearance
    or a premarket approval application.

   In entering the U.S. medical device market,
       First determine if it meets definition of medical device.
       Then determine how the may FDA classify the device, if known.
       Finally, gather your information, collect the necessary data, organize
        your submission.

   Products imported into the U.S. meets the same standards and
    requirements as domestic goods.
