515 Project Status

Task A: FDA collects existing information and assesses the risks and benefits (See Docket FDA-2009-M-0101 for information submitted to FDA by manufacturers of these device types)

Task B: FDA convenes a meeting of the advisory committee (panel) to request input on the classification of the device type.

Task C: FDA issues proposed order, which proposes classification of device type into Class I, II, or III

Task D: FDA reviews and considers comments provided

Task E: FDA issues final order, which finalizes classification of device type into Class I, II, or III

1 The classification of this device was finalized prior enactment of the Food and Drug Administration Safety and Innovation Act (FDASIA) on July 9, 2012.

2 Some devices have been classified in two different classes based on the device’s indications for use or technology.

3 CDRH has issued draft guidance on this topic. When finalized, this guidance will represent FDA’s current thinking on this topic.
