Start Preamble


Food and Drug Administration, HHS.


Final rule; correction.


The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is correcting a final rule that appeared in the Federal Register of June 23, 2000 (65 FR 39098). The document classified devices to relieve acute upper airway obstruction. These type devices were classified into class II. The preamble to the final rule correctly states that the devices were exempt from premarket notification, but this exemption was not reflected in the regulatory text. This document corrects that error.


This rule is effective August 3, 2000.
