Workshop Summaries

Section 513(g) Requests for Information – One of the first steps on the marketing pathway for a medical device is to classify your device. As technology and innovation continue to advance, determining how to classify a device can be complex and challenging. This session will provide information on interacting with FDA for device determination and an introduction to Section 513(g) Requests - a mechanism to obtain FDA’s feedback for device determination and classification.

Custom Device Exemptions – In certain circumstances, patients and physicians may have unique physiology or pathology, and may need a custom device.  This session will provide an introduction to the FDA’s regulatory requirements for a custom device exemption.

Each session will include a presentation, followed by a moderated Q&A with a panel of CDRH experts. Audience participants are encouraged to email or call with questions during each session.

There is no fee to attend and registration is not required.

Participants may choose one or both sessions. Each session will begin at the scheduled time.

  • 1:00 – 2:00pm ET: Section 513(g) Requests for Information
  • 2:00 – 3:00pm ET: Custom Device Exemptions
