Challenge

Investigating acquired products and associated FDA clearances.

A client took ownership of numerous products they had obtained through an acquisition. Remediation of the regulatory documents was needed, which included a review and evaluation of the 510(k) products to establish whether or not the current marketed products aligned with the existing FDA clearances. R&Q conducted a 510(k) inventory, which required a significant amount of investigation work to compile a list of all applicable products and associated 510(k) clearances, as well as non-filing justification (NFJ) with regard to design changes.

New "Refuse to Accept" Guidance Document for 510(k)s

There has been much controversy about the new RTA FDA Guidance document titled "Refuse to Accept Policy for 510(k)s". The draft of this guidance was issued for review in August of 2012 and was recently released at the end of that year. However companies are still talking about the changes to the policy and the issues they have with them. As always, the draft guidance document went through the review process where companies could read through the document and provide comments. Several leading medical device companies provided feedback and comments and can be found in this article.
