GUIDANCE DOCUMENT

Intent to Exempt Certain Unclassified Medical Devices from Premarket Notification Requirements Guidance for Industry and Food and Drug Administration Staff February 2019

Final

Intent to Exempt Certain Unclassified Medical Devices from Premarket Notification Requirements

Docket Number:
FDA-2014-D-0967
Issued by:
Guidance Issuing Office
Center for Devices and Radiological Health

This guidance describes the Food and Drug Administration’s (FDA’s) intent to exempt certain unclassified medical devices from premarket notification requirements. FDA believes devices identified in Section IV of this guidance document are sufficiently well understood and do not require premarket notification (510(k)) to assure their safety and effectiveness. Until the publication of a final rule exempting these devices from 510(k), FDA does not intend to enforce compliance with 510(k) requirements for these devices. FDA does not expect manufacturers to submit 510(k)s for these devices during this time period.
