    What is an FDA Medical Device Submission?

    The FDA Medical Device Submission process is the series of steps that a manufacturer must take to obtain device approval for a medical device intended for sale in the United States. The process will vary for each device according to the device’s classification. Regulatory requirements are most strict for Class III devices, less strict for Class II devices, and least strict for Class I devices. Examples of the different type of device approvals include:

    • FDA 510(k) Pre-market notification
    • Premarket Approval (PMA)
    • Investigational Device Exemption (IDE)

    When will I need to submit an FDA Medical Device Approval?

    Any product or device that is intended to be used for a medical application in the United States will require some type of FDA approval. The approval process will grow more complicated depending on your device’s classification and intended use application. Manufacturers will need to complete the applicable approval process, obtain a medical device listing, and meet all regulations for their product before the device can be sold in the United States.
