Food and Drug Administration, HHS.
The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is correcting a notice that appeared in the Federal Register of November 21, 2002 (67 FR 70228). The document announced the rates and interim procedures for medical device user fees for fiscal year (FY) 2003. The document was inadvertently published with confusing language regarding the fee that must be paid by a small business that submits a 510(k) premarket notification for FDA review during FY 2003. The document intended to state that all 510(k)s submitted for FDA review during FY 2003 are subject to a standard fee of $2,187, and that all submitters who are subject to a fee, including a small business, are required to pay this fee. This document corrects that error.
