The Basics of 510(k) and Working With FDA


510 K
Most medical devices in the U.S. today are marketed under the premarket notification 510(k) authorities of the U.S. Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act. In order to market some types of Class I and most types of Class II devices in the United States, you need to submit a 510(k) submission to FDA and receive FDA clearance. While the underlying data used to support the 510(k) submission may be similar to what is required in other jurisdictions, the regulatory requirements and the submission process are very different. The purpose of this workshop is to provide participants with an understanding of the regulatory fundamentals; practical guidance on how to develop, prepare, and submit a 510(k) to FDA; and how to engage with FDA.
