All medical devices are controlled by the general controls of the Federal Food Drug & 化妆品(FD&C)行为, which contain the final procedural regulations in Title 21 of the Code of Federal Regulations, Part 800-1200 (21 CFR § Parts 800 – 12993). The aforementioned controls apply to all medical devices and apply to practices for medical device marketing, 标签, 和监控.

The first step for a medical device attorney should be determining whether the device is, in-fact considered a “medical device” under section 201(h) of the FD&C法. Second, if your device is a “medical device,” pursuant to the FD&C法, you need to consider how to classify it. The FDA has three classes for medical devices; the classes vary with respect to the controls required to assure the safety and effectiveness of your medical device. 第三, 对于某些设备, a marketing application is required, such as a 510(k) or premarket approval (PMA). 最后, consider other requirements, 比如标签, 登记, 清单, 质量体系, 报告, and other important facets of the FDA controls.

Understanding your controls can be confusing, but it is vital to staying compliant. The FDA works with entrepreneurs and medical device companies to promote safety and effectiveness, 因此, understanding a complicated regulatory path is critical for compliant development and marketing.
