1 FDA maintains a searchable online procode database (that includes both procodes and device common names). See also Device Product Codes for Device Constituent Parts of ANDA/NDA/BLA Combination Products. The Combination Product Applicant may contact CDRH’s Division of Industry and Consumer Education (DICE) (DICE@fda.hhs.gov), as well as the Office of Combination Products (OCP) (email@example.com), as needed for assistance in determining the product code that most closely aligns with their device constituent part.
