Regulatory Requirements for Hearing Aid Devices and Personal Sound Amplification Products Guidance for Industry and FDA Staff February 2009

Final
Issued by:
Guidance Issuing Office
Center for Devices and Radiological Health

This guidance document identifies applicable legal requirements under the Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act (the Act) for hearing aids and for personal sound amplification products (PSAPs). Hearing aids and PSAPs both affect our ability to hear sound, but the products have different intended uses, and are therefore subject to different regulatory controls.
