Start Preamble


Food and Drug Administration, HHS.


Direct final rule; withdrawal.


The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) published in the Federal Register of April 1, 2010, a direct final rule that was intended to make noncontroversial amendments to existing regulations which would require the submission of readily available pediatric medical device information as a part of premarket approval applications, requests for humanitarian use device exemptions, and any product development protocols. The comment period closed on June 15, 2010. FDA is withdrawing the direct final rule because the agency received significant adverse comment.


The direct final rule published at 75 FR 16347, April 1, 2010, is withdrawn on July 19, 2010.
