SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

I. Background

Section 204 of the Food and Drug Administration Modernization Act of 1997 (FDAMA) (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 Start Printed Page 53265premarket review submissions or other requirements.

In the Federal Register notice of September 13, 2018 (83 FR 46738), FDA announced the availability of a guidance entitled “Appropriate use of Voluntary Consensus Standards in Premarket Submission for Medical Devices.” The guidance describes how FDA has implemented its standard recognition program and is available at https://www.fda.gov/​downloads/​MedicalDevices/​DeviceRegulationandGuidance/​GuidanceDocuments/​ucm077295.pdf. Modifications to the initial list of recognized standards, as published in the Federal Register, can be accessed at https://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 hypertext markup language (HTML) and portable document format (PDF) versions of the list of FDA Recognized Consensus Standards. Additional information on the Agency's standards program is available at https://www.fda.gov/​MedicalDevices/​DeviceRegulationandGuidance/​Standards/​default.htm.

II. Modifications to the List of Recognized Standards, Recognition List Number: 050

FDA is announcing the addition, withdrawal, correction, and revision of certain consensus standards the Agency is recognizing for use in premarket submissions and other requirements for devices. FDA is incorporating these modifications to the list of FDA Recognized Consensus Standards in the Agency's searchable database. FDA is using the term “Recognition List Number: 050” to identify the current modifications.

In table 1, FDA describes 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, FDA lists modifications the Agency is making that involve the initial addition of standards not previously recognized by FDA.
