Notice.

SUMMARY:

The Food and Drug Administration (FDA or we) is announcing a publication containing modifications the Agency is making to the list of standards FDA recognizes for use in premarket reviews (“FDA Recognized Consensus Standards”). This publication, entitled “Modifications to the List of Recognized Standards, Recognition List Number: 036” (“Recognition List Number: 036”), will assist manufacturers who elect to declare conformity with consensus standards to meet certain requirements for medical devices.

DATES:

Submit either electronic or written comments concerning this document at any time. See section VII for the effective date of the recognition of standards announced in this document.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

I. Background

Section 204 of the Food and Drug Administration Modernization Act of 1997 (Pub. L. 105-115) amended section 514 of the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act (the FD&C Act) (21 U.S.C. 360d). Amended section 514 allows FDA to recognize consensus standards developed by international and national organizations for use in satisfying portions of device premarket review submissions or other requirements.

In a notice published in the Federal Register of February 25, 1998 (63 FR 9561), FDA announced the availability of a guidance entitled “Recognition and Use of Consensus Standards.” The notice described how we would implement our standard recognition program and provided the initial list of recognized standards.

Modifications to the initial list of recognized standards, as published in the Federal Register, can be accessed at http://www.fda.gov/​MedicalDevices/​DeviceRegulationandGuidance/​Standards/​ucm123792.htm.

These notices describe the addition, withdrawal, and revision of certain standards recognized by FDA. The Agency maintains HTML and PDF versions of the list of FDA Recognized Consensus Standards. Both versions are publicly accessible at the Agency's Internet site. See section VI for electronic access information. Interested persons should review the supplementary information sheet for the standard to understand fully the extent to which FDA recognizes the standard.

II. Modifications to the List of Recognized Standards, Recognition List Number: 036

FDA is announcing the addition, withdrawal, correction, and revision of certain consensus standards the Agency will recognize for use in premarket submissions and other requirements for devices. We will incorporate these modifications in the list of FDA Recognized Consensus Standards in the Agency's searchable database. We will use the term “Recognition List Number: 036” to identify these current modifications.

In table 1, we describe the following modifications: (1) The withdrawal of standards and their replacement by others, if applicable, (2) the correction of errors made by FDA in listing previously recognized standards, and (3) the changes to the supplementary information sheets of recognized standards that describe revisions to the applicability of the standards.

In section III, we list modifications the Agency is making that involve the initial addition of standards not previously recognized by FDA.

IV. List of Recognized Standards

FDA maintains the Agency's current list of FDA Recognized Consensus Standards in a searchable database that may be accessed directly at our Internet site at http://www.accessdata.fda.gov/​scripts/​cdrh/​cfdocs/​cfStandards/​search.cfm. We will incorporate the modifications and revisions described in this notice into the database and, upon publication in the Federal Register, this recognition of consensus standards will be effective. We will announce additional modifications and revisions to the list of recognized consensus standards, as needed, in the Federal Register once a year, or more often if necessary. Beginning with Recognition List 033, we will no longer announce minor revisions to the list of recognized consensus standards such as technical contact person, devices affected, processes affected, Code of Federal Regulations citations, and product codes.

V. Recommendation of Standards for Recognition by FDA

Any person may recommend consensus standards as candidates for Start Printed Page 38920recognition under section 514 of the FD&C Act by submitting such recommendations, with reasons for the recommendation, to www.standards@cdrh.fda.gov. To be properly considered, such recommendations should contain, at a minimum, the following information: (1) Title of the standard, (2) any reference number and date, (3) name and address of the national or international standards development organization, (4) a proposed list of devices for which a declaration of conformity to this standard should routinely apply, and (5) a brief identification of the testing or performance or other characteristics of the device(s) that would be addressed by a declaration of conformity.

VI. Electronic Access

You may obtain a copy of “Guidance on the Recognition and Use of Consensus Standards” by using the Internet. The Center for Devices and Radiological Health (CDRH) maintains a site on the Internet for easy access to information including text, graphics, and files that you may download to a personal computer with access to the Internet. Updated on a regular basis, the CDRH home page includes the guidance as well as the current list of recognized standards and other standards-related documents. After publication in the Federal Register, this notice announcing “Modification to the List of Recognized Standards, Recognition List Number: 036” will be available at http://www.fda.gov/​MedicalDevices/​DeviceRegulationandGuidance/​Standards/​ucm123792.htm. You may access the CDRH home page at http://www.fda.gov/​MedicalDevices.

You may access “Guidance on the Recognition and Use of Consensus Standards,” and the searchable database for “FDA Recognized Consensus Standards” at http://www.fda.gov/​MedicalDevices/​DeviceRegulationandGuidance/​Standards.

VII. Submission of Comments and Effective Date

Interested persons may submit either electronic comments regarding this document to http://www.regulations.gov or written comments to the Division of Dockets Management (see ADDRESSES). It is only necessary to send one set of comments. Identify comments with the docket number found in brackets in the heading of this document. Received comments may be seen in the Division of Dockets Management between 9 a.m. and 4 p.m., Monday through Friday, and will be posted to the docket at http://www.regulations.gov.
