Annual registration is a requirement for any device firm, establishment or facility whose business relates to the production and distribution of medical devices intended for use in the US in some or another way.
Such business establishments have to register with the FDA and also need to list the devices that are made there and the activities that are performed on those devices. The FDA issued a 28-page Proposed Rule that would amend its regulations regarding medical device establishment registration and device listing, under what is called the Proposed Rule.
Four proposed changes
There are four types of changes to the FDA’s device establishment registration and device listing regulations that the Proposed Rule contains:
– Amending the FDA’s current regulations to align them with the provisions of the 2007 FDA that relates to electronic device establishment registration and listing, many of which the FDA has already implemented
– Requiring establishments to provide certain information that FDA currently requests when the establishment registers or lists a device, a non-mandatory requirement
– Amending the regulations to expedite the FDA’s collection of information from foreign establishments about their devices that are imported into the US as required by the 2002 Bioterrorism Act and other proposed changes to be addressed
– Requiring establishments to provide additional or different information from that specified in the current regulations, but which FDA now requests via FURLS.
