Medical Devices; Immunology and Microbiology Devices; 
Classification of the Endotoxin Assay; Technical Amendment

AGENCY: Food and Drug Administration, HHS.

ACTION: Final rule; technical amendment.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

SUMMARY: The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) published a final rule 
in the Federal Register of October 31, 2003 (68 FR 62007). The final 
rule classified the endotoxin assay into class II (special controls). 
The agency classified the device into class II (special controls) in 
order to provide reasonable assurance of safety and effectiveness of 
the device. FDA is amending the agency's regulations to redesignate the 
section number listed in the Code of Federal Regulations (CFR) from 
Sec.  866.3610 to Sec.  866.3210.

DATES: This rule is effective September 7, 2005.

and Radiological Health (HFZ-440), Food and Drug Administration, 2098 
Gaither Rd., Rockville, MD 20850, 240-276-0496 ext. 1111.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: FDA has found that the endotoxin assay 
regulation does not reflect the correct section number listed in the 
CFR. Accordingly, FDA is amending the regulation in Sec.  866.3610 (21 
CFR 866.3610) to correct the error by redesignating the section number 
from Sec.  866.3610 to 866.3210.
