510(k) eSubmissions Pilot Program
The CDRH 510(k) eSubmissions Pilot Program is a new voluntary route for submitting 510(k) applications that guides the user through constructing and submitting a 510(k) submission electronically, eliminating the need for a hard copy or a compact disc.
Pilot submissions will help refine the process by which CDRH gathers data and documents, and it will ensure that the software infrastructure functions work properly.
FDA is now accepting limited requests to participate in the CDRH 510(k) eSubmissions Pilot.
The FDA will accept requests for participation in the CDRH 510(k) eSubmissions Pilot through September 30, 2014, or as resources and the CDRH 510(k) eSubmissions Pilot needs allow. The FDA is limiting the CDRH 510(k) eSubmissions Pilot to approximately 50 - 100 submissions and may further limit the number of submissions from an individual firm.
Sponsors interested in volunteering to participate in the CDRH 510(k) eSubmissions Pilot should email the CDRH 510(k) eSubmissions Pilot staff at eSubpilot@fda.hhs.gov and include the name of the device and primary product code in the email. This email address is also for reporting issues and asking questions. FDA will only accept 510(k) eSubmissions from sponsors that first contact us at this email address and are accepted into the pilot.
Once sponsors are accepted into the pilot, they should follow the CDRH 510(k) eSubmissions Pilot User Guide for the process of submitting a 510(k) eSubmission.
