Medical Devices

International Programs

CDRH’s international programs are an important part of our work in assuring that patients and providers have timely and continued access to safe, effective, and high-quality medical devices.

CDRH implements policies and programs related to international regulatory authorities, and it interacts with international organizations and international trade.

CDRH actively engages the global medical device community through ongoing dialogue and sharing information with foreign regulatory counterparts under agency confidentiality arrangements. In addition, information on CDRH’s activities related to specific international standards can be found on the Standards (Medical Devices) webpage.
