Medical Device User Fee and Modernization Act (MDUFMA)
The Medical Device User Fee and Modernization Act of 2002 (MDUFMA), P.L. 107-250, amended the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act to provide:
- User fees for device reviews;
- New provisions allowing establishment inspections to be conducted by accredited persons (third-parties);
- New regulatory requirements for reprocessed single-use devices.
On September 27, 2007, the President signed an act reauthorizing medical device user fees for fiscal years 2008 - 2012. The legislation — the Medical Device User Fee Amendments of 2007 — is part of a larger bill — the Food and Drug Administration Amendments Act of 2007 (H.R. 3850) — that affects many other FDA programs.
