FDA approved medical devices
FDA management for medical devices and radiological health centers through the instrument (CDRH) conducted by the Centre supervise the production of medical devices, packaging, dealers comply with the law under the business activities.
A wide range of medical devices, small medical gloves, ranging from pacemakers, are under the supervision of the FDA, based on medical uses and possible injury to humans, FDA medical device will be divided into Ⅰ, Ⅱ, Ⅲ class, the higher Category supervise more.
If the product is on the market did not exist novel invention, FDA requires manufacturers to conduct rigorous human trials, and there is a compelling medical and statistical evidence of the product's effectiveness and safety.
FDA approval of medical devices, including: manufacturers in FDA registered, FDA product registration, product listing registration (510 enrollees), market review and approval (PMA review) health care equipment labels and technological innovation, customs clearance, registration, prior to listing report, shall submit the following materials:
(A) finished products packaged complete in five copies,
(2) Device structure diagram and text description
(3) the performance of equipment and working principle;
(4) device safety demonstration or testing materials,
(5) Manufacturing Process Description,
(6) clinical trial summary
(7) product specifications, such as the equipment or release of radioactive radioactive material can be described in detail.
Medical equipment factories and product registration
FDA for medical devices are clear and strict definition, which is defined as follows: "The so-called medical equipment is subject to the following conditions of the instrument, apparatus, tools, machinery, equipment, insertion tube, in vitro reagent, and other related items, including components, parts, or Accessories: explicitly listed in the National Formulary, or the Unite States Pharmacopeia or the aforesaid two appendices are; expected to be used in animal or human disease, or other physical conditions diagnosed, or for disease cure, mitigation and treatment; expected impact animal or human body function or structure, but not via metabolism to achieve its main objective person. "
Only products that meet the above definition of party is regarded as medical devices, in this definition, not only in hospitals of various instruments and tools, even if consumers can buy at the general store of spectacle frames, glasses, toothbrushes and other fitness equipment and massage belong to the scope of the FDA management. It finds domestic medical devices is slightly different.
According to the different levels of risk, FDA medical device will be divided into three categories (Ⅰ, Ⅱ, Ⅲ), Ⅲ class highest level of risk. Each medical device FDA will have to clearly define their product classification and management requirements of the current FDA medical device product catalog Total 1,700 kinds. Any kind of medical device you want to enter the U.S. market, we must first understand the application for listing products classification and management requirements.
FDA for medical devices developed a number of bills from time to time to modify and supplement, but the underlying bill is not much, including: the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act (FD & C Act, the fundamental Act); Public Health Service Act; just packaging and identification bill; Radiation Control for Health and Safety Act; Safe Medical Devices Act; Modernization Act. These bills, FDA gave a very detailed explanation and supporting a specific operating requirements. Companies plan to enter the U.S. market before the need to carefully evaluate products for their own specific regulations and requirements related (including different American product standards).
After the above information in a clear, companies can begin preparing for the disclosure of information in accordance with certain procedures reported to the FDA to obtain approval of recognition. For any product, companies are required to carry out business registration (Registration) and the product column names (Listing). Right Ⅰ products (accounting for about 47%), the implementation of the general control (General Control), most of the products simply to register the column names and implementation of GMP standards, the products to enter the U.S. market (which is also rare product GMP exemption, a handful of products you need to keep submitting to FDA 510 (K) application that PMN (Premarket Notification)); class Ⅱ products (accounting for about 46%), the implementation of the special control (Special Control), enterprises in the registration and column names, the need to implement GMP and submit 510 (K) application (rare product is 510 (K) exemption); pair Ⅲ products (about 7%), the implementation of a Premarket Approval, enterprises in the registration and column names, shall submit the implementation of GMP to FDA PMA (Premarket Application) Application (Part Ⅲ products or PMN).
For class Ⅰ products, companies submit relevant information to the FDA, FDA only make an announcement, there is no relevant documents distributed enterprise; right Ⅱ, Ⅲ class equipment, the enterprise must submit a PMN or PMA, FDA, while in the announcement, will give enterprises formal market access approval letter (Clearance), which allows companies in their own name in the U.S. medical device market to sell their products directly. As to whether the application process to the corporate on-site GMP assessment, risk level according to the product by the FDA, regulatory requirements and market feedback and other comprehensive factors.
Based on the above content shows that most of the products during the business registration, product listing and implementation of GMP, or re-submit a 510 (K) application, you can get FDA clearance to market.
1.510 (K) file that is FDA files needed for PMN, because the corresponding FD & C Act section 510, it is usually called 510 (K) file.
2. Substantive equality comparisons (SE)
3.510 (K) review process
Prior to the application must be clear whether the product is recognized by the FDA as a medical device, product category, management requirements, apply clear job content;
Check the products listed on the application whether the U.S. mandatory standards, whether the products meet the standard (general requirements for the official testing organizations test report);
In preparation 510 (K) application documents before the need to consider whether it really needs to submit, submit and when to submit the nature of which 510 (K) Application: General 510 (K), Special 510 (K), to simplify 510 (K) ;
FDA on the application process issues raised should be promptly given in writing, timely answer;
All information submitted to the FDA should use the paper size Letter Size (21.5cm X 29.7cm);
All companies need to submit data from the FDA left backup because the FDA after receipt of the application data electronically scanned login, and the destruction of application information and does not return business.

Required to inform the FDA's formal contacts and working procedures of the FDA regulations have a certain understanding, and can communicate directly with the FDA to facilitate timely feedback, businesses can clear themselves or entrust advisory body responsible for daily communication with the FDA.
Cosmetics FDA certification
Cosmetics Voluntary Registration Scheme (VCRP)
FDA Office of Cosmetics and pigmented cosmetic industry should be required to develop a voluntary registration scheme for cosmetics. Plan includes two parts: the cosmetics manufacturers and cosmetic ingredients voluntary registration statement.
Benefits of participating VCRP
Manufacturers voluntarily register and receive a registration number does not mean that FDA approval of the manufacturer or its products, FDA does not allow manufacturers to use participatory VCRP or obtain the registration number or column name for commercial promotion; but manufacturers can be directly obtained by participating in the following VCRP Benefits:
Important information for cosmetic ingredients. FDA will VCRP get all the information entered into the computer database. If you are using some kind of cosmetic ingredients once they are considered to be harmful and should be banned, FDA through VCRP notification contacts database product manufacturer or distributor. If your product is not in the registration database, FDA will not be able to inform you.
Avoid problems caused ingredients imported products being recalled or detained. If cosmetics manufacturers to product formulations in VCRP record, as long as the FDA found that manufacturers use in formulations unapproved color additives or other banned ingredients, will remind manufacturers attention. In this way, manufacturers can import or sale of the product before modifying product formulations, thereby eliminating the use of lead because of improper ingredient product being recalled or detained risk. Help retailers identify safety-conscious manufacturers. Retailers (such as department stores) sometimes asked whether FDA a cosmetics company registered with the FDA. Although registration does not mean that FDA approval, but it shows that your product through the FDA review and enter the government's database. If you submit product formulations incomplete, or contain some banned ingredients or unapproved color additives, FDA will notify you.
The decision was based on samples collected nature of the products; FDA priority concerns; product of past history. FDA to obtain a physical sample and send it to the laboratory for analysis FDA District
If the FDA found that the sample meets the requirements, respectively, to the U.S. Customs and importers to send a "release notice."
If the FDA concluded that the sample "a violation of FDCA performance and other relevant laws," respectively, and the case to the U.S. Customs and importers Send "seizure and notice of hearing." Notice of violation and the nature and details to the case and the importer 10 days to provide evidence that the goods may be permitted.
Imported goods have been seized by the FDA or the United States must be under the supervision of Customs trimmed reinfusion or destroyed
Hearing is the importer for the import of defense articles or provide evidence to the goods after trimmed the only opportunity for immigrants.
If the case and underwriters, the owner, importer, or a designated representative of the non-response letter, FDA and the case to the U.S. Customs and importers Send "refused permission to notice." Then issue the reach of product transfusion or destroyed.
If the case and underwriters, the owner, importer, or a designated representative replied "seizure and notice of hearing," When the importer to provide evidence that the product "meets expectations" or submitting an application when finishing products, FDA had seized products hearing.
