Information about FDA/CDRH Reorganization
We would like to inform you that the Center for Devices and Radiological Health (CDRH) reorganized the Office of Device Evaluation (ODE) and the newly renamed Office of In Vitro Diagnostics and Radiological Health (OIR). This change was made to allow branches within each office to focus on a more similar group of products.
Office of In Vitro Diagnostics and Radiological Health
OIR, formerly known as the Office of In Vitro Diagnostic Device Evaluation and Safety (OIVD), reorganized on Oct. 1, 2012 to include two Divisions with integrated regulatory responsibilities aligned by product area: the Division of Mammography and Quality Standards (DMQS) and the Division of Radiological Health (DRH).
Office of Device Evaluation
The Office of Device Evaluation reorganized on Nov. 1, 2012, creating two new divisions: the Division of Surgical Devices and the Division of Neurological and Physical Medicine Devices. Across all review divisions, twelve new branches were added, allowing for greater focus on similar product groups within branches.
